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
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 will provide a town commons complete with an expansive courtyard, which will offer 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 will begin in August 2022 and is projected to be complete in October 2022.
