A Brief History:

The Community Building was purchased by the Kiowa VFW and American Legion Posts in 1946.  Once used as a theater by the Alva, OK prisoner-of-war camp during WWII, the building was dismantled and re-assembled from the original blueprints where it currently stands.  For years the building was used for large gatherings, dances and basketball games.  In 1982 the Myrtle King Estate donated money for repairs to the building.  In 1985 the veterans groups donated the building to the city as part of a Community Development Block Grant process to remodel the building.  In 1986 the city was awarded a CDBG for $121,000 to remodel the building.  Construction was completed in 1988 and resulted in the building appearing as it now does.  The building has continued to be used for large meetings, social events, wedding receptions, theater performances and much more.
