The dream of a Patriots’ Hall begins
For Dripping Springs veterans, the dream of having their own building is beginning to become a reality thanks to the efforts of local volunteers who have undertaken the gigantic task of building a “Patriots’ Hall.”
“It’s never been done before,” Patriots’ Hall Board Director Kathryn Chandler said. “It will be the first of its kind, a ten-acre retreat for workshops and veteran events. A place designed for veterans and their families to gather. Our mission statement is to create an innovative retreat for veterans of all ages, and all military branches, to relax, socialize and find support.”
On Oct. 24, ten acres of land for the project were acquired on Hwy 290, near the intersection of Hwy 290 and Canyonwood Drive (behind the Domino’s Pizza). The next steps for the project will be raising the money to construct the building and landscaping.
The first phase of the project will be the construction of a 3,500 sq. ft. main building which will serve as a main gathering hall, and a second 1,000 sq. ft. “accent hall” which will serve to house the Dripping Springs VFW and American Legions posts.
