History of the Hall
In 1893 eighteen Seabold families petitioned the county to establish a school. John Johnson donated land that summer, and $700 in bonds were issued for the building by Seabold District No. 28’s first directors – William Bull, Nels Miller and N.P. Nelson. William Beedy, the first teacher, was hired for $35 a month. The school became the focus of all social life including funerals, bazaars, church and Sunday school, until Seabold Church was built in 1909. The school closed in 1928 after island school districts consolidated. It was then purchased by the Seabold Community Club. For many years Seabold Hall served the needs of the Club, and was used by many in the community for private functions. (Text courtesy of the Bainbridge Island Historical Society)
In March of 2011, the remaining members of the Seabold Community Club turned ownership of the hall over to the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District. The District plans to uphold the use of the hall for all of Bainbridge Island, while providing for its maintenance and needed repairs.
