Heritage Wall

The San Benito County Historical Society would like to invite you to:

The Historical Society is asking you, as a friend of the Society, to help raise funds for by far the most ambitious project to date!

The project is the completion of the Dance Hall. The Dance Hall structure will be built similar to the old Dunneville Dance Hall that blew over on New Years’ Day in 2006. So far, we have completed the concrete slab foundation, obtained structural engineering plans and a county building permit. We now need to put up the walls and the roof.

Once the Dance Hall is completed, it will provide a venue for community youth groups (Scouts, 4-H, County Schools, etc.) and families, businesses, and organizations will be able to rent the facility for workshops, weddings, civic events, board meetings and various other events. Revenue from rentals will allow for further development to enhance the facility. Once the entire project is complete, it can be self-sustaining through rentals for different groups in San Benito County.

By joining the history caravan you, your business, your family, or a valued employee will be permanently memorialized with a plaque (made from the floorboards of the original Dunneville Dance Hall) on the HERITAGE WALL in the rebuilt Dance Hall. Additionally, you will receive a family page outlining your journey through San Benito County in the Heritage Wall Book and on the Historical Society website for future generations to enjoy.

Become Part of History!

We hope that you will remember our vision of the Dunneville Dance Hall and help us made it a reality for the summer of 2013.  Test
