About this Exploration:

This elegant space is perfect for a wedding reception or a corporate meeting.  The project was financed by the Marion Advancement Campaign and completed at the end of 2010.  Originally constructed in the late 1930s, this space provided decades of cultural entertainment in the form of class plays and musicals.  The city used the auditorium when controversial issues swelled the crowd at council meetings beyond the capacity of that room.  The high school used it for award ceremonies and it was the alternative site for almost every outdoor city activity in case of bad weather.  When USD 408 built The Performing Arts Center, many citizens felt the auditorium might not be maintained.  With the hard work of the Marion Advancement Campaign, the Community Center is a jewel in the crown of our little town.
