How to Find the New Dorr Township Hall

A couple of weeks ago I went searching for the new Dorr Township Hall.

The old one that Township Supervisor Ed Buckley had built had become too crowded, so the Township Board somehow managed to accumulate enough money to buy another facility and remodel it.

I was told it was near Walmart, so I went looking. No GPS in my old car and I didn’t have an address anyway.

Driving around the streets near Walmart, I came up empty.

The Dorr Township Hall that the Township board concluded was too small.

So, the next time I was in Woodstock, I drove to the old Township Hall and found an address for the new headquarters on the door.

Equipped with the new address–1039 Lake Avenue–I drove past it after crossing Route 47 before I caught a number.

Turning around and finding a kind person who let me get back into the Downtown-bound lane, I drove toward Route 47.

And, there it was on the east side of the road.

Big white facade with “Dorr Township” near the roof line.

The new Dorr Township Hall just southeast of Route 47 at 1035 Lake Avenue.

No sign near the road that I could see. Maybe that’s planned in the future.

Maybe the easiest way to find the place is to find the Red Mill Inn and look across the street.

And I hope you want to go toward Downtown when you leave.

Getting through traffic to turn left was a real challenge.

  1. One day, someday, Woodstock Police may start ticketing drivers who stop and block intersections and driveways, such as in front of the Town Hall, Hicks Gas and the Marathon station. If drivers did not so stop, then a driver exiting from the Town Hall could turn left into the two-way, left-turn lane (TWLTL) and stop to wait for a gap in southeast-bound traffic. It’s legal to do that, although many drivers do not know it or do it. (It is not legal to use the TWLTL for a driving lane.; you can only turn out of it or into it.)
