The foundation stone for the Hall was laid on the 27th June 1874.
The building was built of freestone from the local Traprain quarry at a
cost of £1000, raised by generous private donations and subsequent fund
raising events. The East Linton Volunteer Drill Hall was offocially
opened on Wednesday 6th January 1875 by the Earl of Haddington as a
place for indoor drill practice for the 'Linton Volunteers' - the No.5
Haddington Rifle Volunteers.
In 1962 the name changed to the Community Hall after the formation of the East Linton and District Community Association. On 2nd September 2000 the newly refurbished and extended hall was
opened by John Home Robertson (MP, MSP). The works were part funded by The Millenium Commission.
