Long Description:

County of center: Callaway County
Location of center: CR 184 & Douglas St., Williamsburg
Built: 1884

Building built in 1884, I cannot believe it was built as a community center way-back-then...BUT, I cannot run down what was the original use of this structure.
The set of the windows on the side of the building, and the pitch of the roof with a "foyer" style structure at the front, it make one jump to the conclusion that it was built originally as a church of some flavor.
BUT - neither is no proof one way or the other.

After a hour of rummaging through trash and jetsam on the web, I ran into this:
  "The Williamsburg Community Club, which is housed in the old Methodist Church building whose congregation
  had served the community from before 1884 until 1951" ~ Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society


From a town (village) this small pickings are slim - but still some activity:
