New Community Hall in the Works in Harper

A new community hall is in the works in Harper. The Harper Community Park Association is leading the effort to tear down the current Harper Community Hall which is 55 years old, and the new one will be funded with donations and grants. So far they’ve got about $565,000, and the Fredericksburg Standard reports it will cost $739,000 to finish out. Demolition will begin on Monday, Aug. 20 and construction on the new building will start this fall. It will be a place for wedding receptions, family reunions and community events.
