Description
Public building.
Heritage Value
The Capitol Hill Community Hall was designed by local architect Harold Cullerne (1890-1976). After Cullerne returned from service during the First World War, he joined J.H. Bowman in a partnership that lasted from 1919 to 1934. After Bowman retired in 1934, Cullerne practiced on his own, continuing to work on schools and institutional buildings, such as the Art Deco Hollywood Theatre in Vancouver. In 1944, Cullerne designed a community hall for Capitol Hill; the scheme was delayed, and redesigned before it was finally built after the end of the Second World War. A simple front gabled roof hall structure, this hall is a monument to community spirit, erected by community members on a volunteer basis, and used for community events for over half a century. The hall replaced two earlier structures, both destroyed by fire, that had served the same purpose.

History/Biography
The Capitol Hall Community Association was formed in 1912, with meetings held 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 the building was destroyed by fire in 1924. A new hall was erected south of Hastings Street in 1926 and was used for Association activities until 1943 when it was also destroyed by fire. From 1943 until late 1947, Capitol Hill Community Association meetings were held in a variety of places, including the United Church Hall, Mrs. Wilson’s house on Ellesmere, Capitol Hill School, Harry Royle’s Store and Mrs. Wood’s house on North Warwick. Various plans and sketches for a new hall were discussed, including one by architect Harold Collerne, but it was turned down. By June of 1944, members decided on the Howard Avenue site on Dynes Park, north of Hastings Street. Two applications for building permits were turned down. In 1946, the Municipal Clerk finally requested tenders for the erection of the hall. In 1947, a "temporary” hall was built on the present site and remains there 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.
