This unique building is located at the northeast corner of State Street and Huron Avenue, the main intersection in Harbor Beach.
The Community House was built on land which had been donated by George Jenks and Anna Belle Jenks Scranton for the purpose of contructing a building to be used for community purposes. It was dedicated on September 21, 1921 and housed a theater/auditorium, gymnasium which doubled as a banquet hall with full kitchen facilities, public & school library, the city offices and Council room, as well as numerous meeting and club rooms.
The building is now home to the local movie theatre, a gymnasium and the public library. The Harbor Beach Area District Library is responsible for administration of the building. The common rooms are in frequent use by area clubs and organizations for meetings, practices and rehearsals.
On the west face of the building is a mural, designed and executed by Dave Wiley, replacing an original mural on the building which had been lost to time and the elements. This new mural depicts local historical scenes and figures, including representations of agriculture, Frank Murphy, shipwrecks, locomotives, and much more.
