Community Events

The Coddington Road Community Center was first erected as a one room school house in the 1850’s and later incorporated in 1949 as a place for the residents of South Hill to congregate and socialize.  Active as a social club until the late 1970’s, the center held frequent community gatherings and events.

Today, the community can still enjoy CRCC’s ball field, woods, playgrounds, and pavilions.  Our buildings and grounds are also available for rental, additional fees apply.
