Inscription. This architect-designed building, constructed in 1942, is a good example of a "Great Depression" era community project accomplished in cooperation with the National Youth Administration. Local in-kind contributions included materials and labor. For example, the stone exterior is local stone from the Moore farm.

The community project was inspired by the efforts and express concerns of Mrs. J.C. Rogers, a past President of Dahlonega Woman's club, and is now dedicated to her memory. John H. Moore and Ernest Jarrard are remembered for their roles in the successful completion of the building project. One stipulation was to maintain a community library in the building, which continued until construction of the Lumpkin County Library was completed in 1983. The Dahlonega Woman's Club, which meets at the Community House, has contributed to renovations furnishings and interior decor of the building.
