"The Community Building at 100 East Elm was built with local labor, in the regional vernacular Ozark rock (giraffe) style, funded primarily through the Workers Progress Administration program. Its intended use was as a public community building and it continues to function in this capacity as a city-owned facility. This building is especially significant, representing the common struggles of rural America during the Depression Era, and the physical remains of the WPA relief efforts. It continues to serve the Ozark community by providing space for public functions and events, much as it has since its construction in 1934." - Historic District Nomination
