The current Town Hall building at the Center was built by the WPA help in 1937 replacing a earlier Town Hall on the site which was built in 1873 by John C Johnston, a nearby farmer, architech, county clerk, and early amatuer ballonist. There was a earlier Town Hall which was located on the south west corner lot of Northampton Rd and West Bath Rd. When the new one was planned in 1873 the land was donated by John Best Jr., owner of the farm which is now owned by the city of Cuyahoga Falls and known as Keyser Park.
