Section Outline

(10) Community House (Lakeside)
The Community House, also known as Lakeside, was used for music practice, social gatherings, and exhibitions. The library was there until it was moved into one of the FHA buildings after the war.

The college renovated the building for use as the college library. In addition an entrance area and exhibition niche were added.

The building was demolished before 1955.
