TAGHUM COMMUNITY HALL
The bright & beautiful, renovated Taghum Hall, located along the shores of the Kootenay River, 10 km. west of Nelson, is the cultural cornerstone for the Taghum, Blewett, Beasley and surrounding areas. The hall is operated by a community-based volunteer Board that works miracles with limited resources. With the help of volunteers and supporters from the community the hall hosts vibrant community programming of special events, weekly activities, classes, concerts and markets.
The hall was built in the early 1950s, with volunteer labour, from salvaged buildings from the Lemon Creek Japanese Internment Camp. Over the years, the hall served as a venue for weddings, funerals, meetings, voting, dinners, and dances. Improvements were made gradually budgets over time and then gutted and renovated in 2014 – 2016. The new hall is stunning and enjoys vistas out over the river in two directions.
In this wonderful space the Taghum Hall Board runs or supports the following:
It’s a bustling place. Everyone is welcome and supporting memberships are available for $25 annually.
