This is a very important building in the history of San Pedro. It was built with money from government and free labor of San Pedranos to give San Pedro a Community Center. As a community Center, Peace Corps Volunteers mounted a small library and game room which included ping pong, Chinese checkers, chess, etc. for the children. All weddings and occasional quinceaños were celebrated in the Community Center.
Later on San Pedro High School transformed it into the first high school of the Island. When San Pedro high moved into its own building in 1987, San Pedro’s first mayor, Gilberto Chico Gomez then transformed it one more time into the San Pedro Town Hall. It is a historic building that has served many purposes- a building that San Pedranos can really be proud of.
