New Assembly Rooms

Dancing at Fayette and Holliday Streets

The Dancing Assembly Rooms, with the appropriate suite of apartments, for the second floor, and fronting Fayette street, have been for some time occupied as a dancing academy. Mr. Mallet, a celebrated instructor, has taken a lease of them, where his school is kept and cotillion parties accommodated. Cost of the building $38,000.
