This group of Middlefield ladies was known as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). They were concerned about the problems that alcohol created in the family and society. They choose total abstinence and crusaded tirelessly against alcohol. These ladies were usually the wives of Middlefields’ prominent businessmen. In 1906, an election was held in Middlefield to allow the sale of alcohol in the village, and because women did not have the right to vote at this time, it passed by an overwhelming “yes” vote of the male citizens. From the looks on the faces, I don’t think the ladies were very happy about it.

Limited Time Only!

When prohibition outlawed the sale and manufacture of alcohol, some citizens chose to start making their own illegally, and the WCTU promoted raids on the illegal stills. The WCTU ladies shown entering the door were there to inspect the results of one of those raids. You can see the many confiscated barrels that were used in the making of illegal alcohol. The rear of the building is the old Town Hall on East High Street next to Western Reserve.
