Description

Al Brundage wrote these recollections of his experiences growing up in Connecticut and the growth of square dancing. His story includes discovering square dance as a boy, followed by the whole Brundage family getting involved in the activity and forming the King Street Pioneers. He mentions some of the important figures in the Northeast in those early years, and then describes the changes that came into square dancing in the post-World War II years and squares moved from traditional to modern.

There is also a section describing some of the many dance barns that existed over the years, and Bob Brundage added his own comments to this section.
