Founded in 1937, getting its start in Finch’s Country Store to provide space to a Boy Scout Troop, it soon became clear the need for space for children’s programs in the local area. Two gentlemen, R. Eugene Curry and Julian Howay, enlisted the financial help of several prominent people, and The Banksville Community House was founded.In 1939, the first BCH President, Herbert Bertrand, bought the old Jensen Farm and presented it to the people of Banksville as a gift, to be represented by the Board of Directors. Thus, the BCH moved to its current home at 12 Banksville Road.
