1. Yountville Community Hall Marker
Inscription. Built in 1926 on land donated to the Catholic archbishop by the DeBenadetti Family. The hall opened April 17, 1926 and soon became the focal point of social life throughout the Valley.

In 1956 use of the hall was restricted to church functions and called the St. Joan of Arc Hall.

The City of Yountville purchased the hall in 1965 and used a small portion for city hall. The building was again used for social functions and recreation.

Remodeled and dedicated to "The People of Yountville" by the Town Council September 24, 1988.
