About this Exploration:




The Phillipsburg Community Building was built in 1935 of green limestone under the Works Progress Adminstration (WPA). Throughout the years, this building has been used for Canteen dances, Oddfellow and Rebecca meetings, birthday parties and family reunions. At one time, the Big Name Bands would play for dances on Friday and Saturday nights. Phillipsburg residents danced to the Fabulous Flippers, The Avengers, Red Dogs, The Spider and The Crabs and The Blue Boys.
 
The inside of this building is in much need of repair. However; it is still worth the time for the "explorer" to see. The original stage is still in the building, hiding behind a temporary wall with a basketball goal on it. For those interested in architectural design, this building is filled with unique and historic features.
 
Home to the HOPE Foundation and the Drivers License Examiner, the building is open from 8:00 - 5:00 Monday through Friday.  Contact Tammy Merklein at 785.543.2223, director for the HOPE Foundation, if you would like to schedule a tour of this grand building.

Currently, the Hope Foundation is raising funds for the renovation of the building.
