Comments:

Hall City is a ghost town in Florida. It was established in what is now Glades County, Florida, during 1910 by Rev. George F. Hall, a retired Disciples of Christ minister living in Chicago, Illinois. Built and run locally by Rev. Hall’s son, G. Barton Hall, from 1910 until approximately 1925, Hall City was to have been a “temperance town” (i.e., free of alcoholic beverages) and was to be the site of proposed “Hall University”. However, the town failed and the bulk of the land was purchased by the Lykes Brothers Corporation, which still owns the original site.
