Village Hall Origins
Originally a Congregationalist chapel, built in 1845 to accommodate 500, reflected the strength of Nonconformity in the Eversdens. (The Eversdens’ Past section of the Archive has information about the Francis Holcroft plaque.) By 1937, however, membership had fallen to 22. The chapel finally closed in 1965 when its members joined Kingston chapel. The Eversdens Parish Council bought the building and restored it as The Village Hall.
