A brief history of the Schomberg Community Hall

In the early 1900's, Schomberg was known as having one of the best small town produce markets north of Toronto.  Producers came from miles distant to dispose of their commodities.

Market day was a busy day for many years.  On that day there was not enough accommodation for all at the hitching posts on the street and in the local sheds, and many farmers had to use the fairgrounds to tie their horses while they sold their produce and purchased goods with the proceeds.

In 1907 the Schomberg Market Association was formed and the Schomberg Community Hall was built. In 1922 it was decided to add a community hall to the building and a second story was added to provide an auditorium, while the lower floor continued to be used for the market.
