Built in 1884 as an elegant home,​​ this lovely building is in Hartford's historic district and was formerly the Elk's Lodge.  Additions were made in 1990 to include an elevator, commercial kitchen, large event space, pub, dining room, numerous offices, and meeting spaces. The historical uniqueness of the building in a historic area makes the site an ideal location for the Cornerstone Community Center.

The building is over 25,000 square feet and has three distinct floor plans. Each floor can be secured and separated.

The benefit of housing the Cornerstone Community Center in this site is the building itself, allowing dramatic expansion of current services and launching new programs and services. The reception room alone has about 9,000 square feet and is complete with a dance floor. The space was designed for catering large events and can accommodate 400 people comfortably. 

The kitchen and adjoining catering facility will allow us to offer on-the-job training in the food services industry. This on-site facility gives us the ability to offer certification training to those in the career development program or culinary career program who have an interest in the food services industry.


Cornerstone will create an estimated 14 full-time and 14 part-time jobs with this expansion.

Your gift will make an impact on our community.​
