History/Biography
The Capitol Hall Community Association was formed in 1912. Meetings were held initially in a machine shop located south of Hastings Street. By 1923 the Association had moved to the original Howard Avenue School at Howard and Francis, but this building was destroyed by fire in 1924. A new hall was erected south of Hastings Street; it was completed in 1926 and used for Association activities until 1943 when this hall was also destroyed by fire. From 1943 until late 1947 Capitol Hill Community Hall meetings were held in a variety of places. These included the United Church Hall, Mrs. Wilson’s on Ellesmere, Capitol Hill School, Harry Royle’s Store and Mrs. Wood’s on North Warwick. Various plans and sketches for a new hall were discussed including one by architect Harold Collerne (it was turned down). By June of 1944, members decided on the Howard Avenue site on Dynes Park, north of Hastings Street, and two applications for building permits were turned down, until 1946 when the Municipal clerk requested tenders for the erection of the hall. In 1947 a “temporary” hall was built on the present site and remains to this day. Planning and construction was carried out with George Green as Chairman of the Building Committee and William James Dynes as Foreman. The members were in the new hall by December 1947.
