Description:
The STCA is a neighborhood organization that owns and maintains the South Trenton Community Hall and conducts events at the Hall for residents of the South Trenton area. The Hall was built in 1876 and 1877. The two-story structure was originally the school on the first floor, built by the school system, and a community meeting room on the second floor, built by popular subscription. When the Holland Patent Central Schools was formed in the mid 20th century, the South Trenton School was closed and students transported to the Village of Holland Patent for classes. The building was given to the community for continuing use as a community meeting place.
Activities:
Over the years, the Hall has been the site of weddings, dances, receptions, Grange meetings and neighborhood parties. Today it is used for a winter recreation program, supported by the Town of Trenton, aimed at children 5 - 12 years of age. Children meet every Friday evening from the first Friday in January through end of March to do craft projects and play. Adult supervision is provided by volunteers from the South Trenton Community Association.  The South Trenton Community Hall is the only structure in the area that was a one room school and is still in use today as a public building.
