Honoring a Legacy

In 1921, George and Emily Mandell of Hamilton commissioned famous architect, Guy Lowell, to design The Community House, in memory of their son, Samuel Mandell, and seven other local men who died during World War I. They were inspired by a national movement to develop spaces that would bring people together after the hardship of war.

100 years later, The Community House remembers…
Major Augustus P. Gardner Samuel Mandell
Lieutenant Samuel Mandell
Lieutenant Norman Prince
Sergeant Major William J. Collins
Corporal William W. Taylor
Corporal Frank Emil Nelson
Private Lester Dean Hodgson
Private Reginald Young

Looking to the future

The Centennial Square provides a town commons complete with an expansive courtyard, which offers benches and table seating for public use. The Pave the Way campaign gives community members the opportunity to leave a permanent mark when they support this important project through the purchase of a personalized engraved brick, granite paver, or furnishing.

Supporters will help fund a lasting, beautiful, meaningful space and join individuals, businesses and organizations who share in The Community House’s vision of community building through arts and enrichment programs and community events. This exciting project began in August 2022 and opened in October of 2022. However, it is not too late to purchase a brick to support this new and beautiful public space.
