From its founding in 1876 through the late 1940’s, Centennial Hall played a vital role in the cultural enrichment and education of North Hampton’s citizens. Today, while awaiting the completion of restoration, the building remains in active use as a center for the arts, club meeting place and host to many groups and charitable organizations.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in May, 2016, the building operations and restoration is managed by the non-profit 501 (c) 3, The Friends of Centennial Hall, Inc.
Centennial Hall continues its legacy of service to the community adapting to a variety of needs and uses. Currently home to six tenants, the Hall is also host to many town events and non-profit organizations. Reasonably priced private function rental is also offered.
With so few of these special buildings left, especially ones that continue to vibrantly serve the community, the building’s survival depends on donor support.
