Auburn Veterans Memorial Hall exterior renovation complete in time for Memorial Day weekend
Published May 26, 2023
Placer County’s Facilities Management team recently completed a $119,500 exterior renovation to the Auburn Veterans Memorial Hall, just in time for local veterans to enjoy remembrance activities over Memorial Day weekend.
Built in 1931, the hall was dedicated in 1932. After World War II the facility was expanded and renovated with updates including cooling and updated kitchen equipment.
In recent years, the exterior has shown its age with a dry rot, and the plaster cornice over the entryway had begun to crumble and fall.
“It’s very important for us to take care of our veterans and preserve their public meeting space,” said Building Maintenance Superintendent Dennis Hughes. “We first took a look at that cornice, and after taking a closer look at the facility, we quickly expanded the project to include overall exterior repairs and painting of the wooden structure.”
