Mostly, the City Council had members of the Church of Christ, who did not allow dancing and they voted for this ordinance to prevent any dancing in Anson. This prevailed until 1940 when a group of Ansonites united to get the ordinance amended, altered and repealed which would allow dancing to continue at the annual ’sworray’ at the newly built Pioneer Hall.
