The Concord Scout House, a 19th Century historic structure on Walden Street in downtown Concord, is almost hidden from view by tall pines. The renovated former dairy barn has brought the wider community together since 1930, when the building was converted to a hall by funds raised by Mary Chamberlin (during the Great Depression!). In 1931, local Girl Scouts used the building, with local Boy Scout Groups joining on in 1988. The Co-operative nursery-the Barn School has used the barn basement since 1980, and throughout the decades, the great hall has hosted dances of every kind, including social dance classes for Concord school children since the 1940’s.
The Scout House still provides space for weekly scout meetings, but also offers a place to meet for those seeking a rustic hall for parties, weddings, meetings, milestones, and celebrations of life, as well as arts & craft fairs, plays, and, recently, movies and tv shows. As an historic structure, the Scout House is a unique building in a town known for it’s history and architecture.

Of course, a 19th century building requires ongoing improvements, and the Scout House’s annual Concord Cuisine Raffle of gift certificates to area eateries helps raise much needed funds. Learn more about the Scout House and the Raffle at www.concordscouthouse.org.
