The historic Baker Community Center located in St. Charles, Illinois, will be holding a re-opening reception to the public to show off the recently renovated facility on April 12 from 4:30-7pm, at 101 S. 2nd St., St. Charles, IL 60174.

The Henry Rockwell Baker Memorial Community Center was constructed in 1926. Since its inception, the facility has been used as a central meeting place, recreational functions, receptions and overall community meeting space. Presently, the St. Charles Park District administrative staff operates out of the facility and partners with the Baker Center Foundation Board to maintain the Baker family’s intent.

The Henry Rockwell Baker Memorial Center Board of Trustees along with the St. Charles Park District selected Kluber Architects + Engineers of Batavia, IL to develop the design for the renovation project which included a variety of capital improvements to the building including expanding ADA accessibility to each floor level, air conditioning at the first and second floors, expand the current office spaces, provide a canopy at the existing exterior ADA ramp to the lower level as well as incidental improvements and maintenance items. These improvements will allow the Baker Community Center to continue providing high-quality service to the community on into the future.
