The Fort Braden Community Center originally was constructed for use as a schoolhouse and opened for the first time in 1927. In 2004 the building was designated as a Florida Heritage Site. It is located on Highway 20 in the Western section of Leon County. The building and pavilion are available for rent and the fees vary depending on space and time requested. The main building boasts a complete kitchen and dining room. It can accommodate large groups and is popular for weddings, showers and reunions. Community activities are frequently booked in the main building. Individual rooms are also available for rent. The screened pavilion includes a number of grills and picnic tables. The pavilion is most often reserved for small gatherings and it is adjacent to playground equipment and a basketball court. We provide tables, (12 8ft & 23 6ft.) and chairs(100). There is a complete audio visual system/ DVD/VCR available for use without an addtional charge. Rental time includes set up and decorating time. After each event we require patrons to put the chairs and tables back where they were found. All trash must be bagged in placed in the dumpster. A staff member will be present to open and close the center on the date of your event. The time reserved includes decorating and clean up time. We cannot open early or close later that the reserved time. Thank you.

We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to opening reservations again once the facilities re-open.
