Founders Hall, formerly the East Blue Hill Baptist Church, was built in 1880 and when, in 2013, the congregation had dwindled to a handful of parishioners, was donated to the East Blue Hill Village Association, a 501(c)3 community organization. Founders Hall is used for local community events, and is available to other nonprofit groups, and to the general public as a rental space for weddings or other gatherings.
The restoration and preservation of the church building, as well as the modernization of its facilities, is an important ongoing project for the village.
Founders Hall is located at 1282 Morgan Bay Road in East Blue Hill. There is a large Main Hall and an attached rear room where a kitchen and additional seating area are located.
