Name of creator
The Victoria Drive Community Hall Association, formed in 1922, was known first as a Community Association. When the Hall was built the name was changed to Victoria Drive Community Hall Association. A committee of six had decided that a building was necessary for a growing community. The South Vancouver Municipal Council gave the site for the Hall at 44th and Victoria at a nominal rent of $1.00, for 20 years. The first Community Hall in Vancouver, it was built by Greater Vancouver merchants who donated much of the labour and material. The Association was managed by a board elected every year, and no one was paid except the janitor. After the 1929 amalgamation, the property was deeded to the Association.
