At one time, there were three communities in the Salmon Valley, each with their own community hall. Closest to town was the Mt Ida Hall, built in 1914. At the south end of the valley, nearer to Falkland is the old Henden School that was later used as hall and then sold and moved to where it sits now.
The Community Hall is currently being renovated with new lighting, washroom and kitchen upgrades, windows and a new well water system. All thanks to dedicated Association members.
