John Hartford and Ms. Spencer, in 1989. “After [Ms. Spencer’s] death, the club was organized under a nonprofit organization, which now owns the small building and some adjacent property. It is raising money for $1.25 million in renovations that would finally, after five decades, put in an elevator and make other improvements.” Photo by Joseph Duel
