This building became the focus for cultural and social activities from the moment it was built. Musical evenings, plays and lectures were held here, and later weddings and dances. In 1936 the building was purchased by the Clarence RSL and later became the social rooms of the Clarence District Football Club. Note the plaque on the front wall. In 1997 the Hobart Christian Life Centre purchased the building.
