Located at the intersection of Union Valley Rd. and Potter Hill Rd., locally known as Four Corners, in the hamlet of Union Valley, Town of DeRuyter, this building once housed a tavern which had a dance hall on the second floor. The raised platform which was built for musicians is said to be still intact. It is now a private residence.
