The War Memorial Building

War Memorial Building - Circa 1868

In 1947 the Club purchased the old Methodist Episcopal Church, South (built in 1868) and renamed it the WAR MEMORIAL BUILDING in recognition of those who lost their lives in World War II. As one of the town’s iconic buildings, it hosts dozens of public and private events throughout the year. The building facilities include a full catering kitchen, a lift to the second floor, an upstairs ballroom known widely for dancing, and a downstairs assembly room.
