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 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.
