Mission Statement

A committee of local community leaders was organized in 1998 as the Friends of the Brandon Town Hall (“Friends”) to develop a plan to restore the town hall to achieve three important goals:
 
1.   Anchor the historic restoration of the town and serve as a keystone and guidepost from which other historic renovations can be realized;
2.   Return the building to the community to again discover the thrill of live performances, the arts, and community cohesiveness through events designed to reach all community members, regardless of age or income; and
3.   Bring new vitality to the downtown as a destination for visitors and a draw for local businesses.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Friends of the Brandon Town Hall has raised and invested over $500,000 in the Hall.  To date we have replaced the marble entry steps, the portico with era appropriate blue stone, the brick work has been repointed, a fire suppression system installed, and a handicap accessible lift was installed to access the main floor.  In addition new theater curtains and grid were installed in 2009 along with interior painting and electric upgrades.  Our Certificate of Occupancy was obtained in December 2009 allowing us to reopen the building to the public to serve once again as the area's community center.
