General note

Administrative history: The Clifton Hall Company was a body politic responsible for governing a public hall in Clifton, Kings County. Each year, one president, one secretary, and between five to seven directors were elected by the Company's membership, which was composed of Company stockholders. For example, in the Company's first year, 1894, Richard W. Wetmore was elected president and James Elias Wetmore was elected secretary. In the same year, Richard W. Wetmore, G. Hudson Flewelling, S. S. Carmichael, O. W. Wetmore, and A. P. Wetmore were elected directors. The Clifton Hall Company managed the Clifton public hall's finances and repairs. For example, in 1914, with G. Hudson Flewelling as president, damage to the ceiling of the hall was reported and a motion was passed to have A. R. Wetmore, one of five directors in 1914, estimate repair costs.

Richard Whelpley Wetmore, the first president of the Clifton Hall Company, was a farmer and a carpenter in Kingston, Kings County. He was born around 1835 and he died in 1922 at age 87.
