Ramona Town Hall
Town Hall was donated to the townspeople of Ramona (then Nuevo,) by Augustus
and Martha Barnett on Washington’s Birthday, February 22nd, 1894. It is held in
trust in perpetuity by a volunteer five member board of trustees. The Town Hall
is not owned by the Board of Trustees, nor is it a public agency. For the past
114 years, the Town Hall has operated solely on fundraisers, private donations,
grant moneys, and rent collected for use of the building. The Town Hall has
served as the town’s first library, first movie theater, first high school,
first bank, dance hall, justice court, and the birthplace of several of the
communities’ service groups, including the Chamber of Commerce, the Masons, and
the volunteer fire department.
