Only the charred remains and three chimneys remained standing of the former and historic Hoosic Club on March 23 after a fire destroyed the Central Avenue landmark where 100 years of weddings, parties, and town functions were held.
The club, which most recently operated as The Milton Club burned to the ground in a three-alarm fire that started at about 1:28 a.m., March 23, according to Milton Fire Chief Chris Madden. The club was located at 193 Central Ave.

“This is a huge loss to the community,” Madden said.
