— Berkeley History —Originally located at Sixth and Delaware streets, this simple wooden building was constructed by volunteers from the Workingman's Club, a west Berkeley political organization. Built as a reading room for laborers, it was used briefly as Berkeley's town hall shortly after completion. In 1882, a Methodist congregation moved the building to this location. It later was home to a succession of churches, schools, and fraternal organizations.
