The historic Farmers Hall Society building was built in 1826
in the Greek revival style.
This beautiful building is located on the southwest corner of the village green in downtown Pendleton.
It was planned as the District’s Court House, but the seat of government was moved before the building was completed.
The local farmers completed the building as the Farmer’s Hall Society building, and it has been in use by this organization ever since.
It is the oldest Farmers Hall still in continuous use in the US and Pendleton’s beautiful centerpiece.
The first floor was used as the U.S. Post Office and the second floor
as the meeting hall. Today a distinguished restaurant is located
on the first floor.
The Guard House, in the background was build in 1860 on the
former old town jail and serves as the magistrate’s office.
Pendelton Townsquare will host the event ‚Upstate Old Fashioned Children’s Games‘ on 11/1/08 and ‚European Art & Music Fair on 11/8/08. Please find more information about both events at: events
