Montague Common Hall

About the hall

The Montague Common Hall, a beautiful example of neo-gothic architecture, is located adjacent to the town common at 34 Main Street, Montague Center, MA. Originally built in 1834 as a Unitarian church, it served for many years as the home of the Montague Grange.

The Friends of the Montague Common Hall, a volunteer-based non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 2013, is committed to preserving this historic resource in order to provide a reasonably priced and attractive venue for a diverse range of events:

  • Dances, concerts, & recitals
  • Weddings & celebrations
  • Art exhibits & craft shows
  • Movie screenings & presentations
  • Classes, lectures, & conferences
  • Practices & Rehearsals
  • Community meetings
  • Children’s play groups

Thanks to your donations and various institutional grants, over the past few years we've been able to maintain and extensively upgrade the building. We've replaced the entire roof, stabilized and weather-sealed the cupola, insulated the walls and ceilings, completely repainted the exterior, renovated the interior walls of the main hall and cloakroom, refinished the maple dance floor, replaced the basement windows, and reglazed the large windows on the main level. There's a lot more to do, including improving accessibility and energy efficiency, but with your help we can do it!

Want to know what can you do to help? In addition to making a donation, there's a job for anyone willing to pitch in. A sampling from the big list: raking leaves, trimming shrubs, cleaning, more cleaning, window-washing, minor miscellaneous repairs, paperwork of various sorts, decision-making large and small, and, in a big way, fundraising. Oh, and did we mention cleaning?

If you're interested in helping, please contact us. We'll find something that fits your skills, your interests, and your schedule.
