Veterans Memorial Buildings

The Veterans Memorial Buildings and Community Center Building have been serving residents of Sonoma County for a variety of purposes since their construction following World War II.

The 8 buildings vary in size from 5,420 square feet in Cotati to 45,650 square feet in Santa Rosa, for a total floor area of 137,778 square feet.

The buildings typically have a large auditorium, meeting rooms, kitchen, and support spaces with offices, however, each building is unique:

  • Guerneville shares the building with the Sheriff's Substation;
  • Cloverdale has a 100,000 gallon public swimming pool;
  • Sonoma is adjacent to a Memorial Cemetery,
  • while Cotati and Sebastopol are adjacent to city parks.

Most of the buildings were constructed between 1950 and 1961. Guerneville is an older building that was acquired by the County in 1948.

Management and Operations

Ticket for EventResponsibility for management of the buildings is shared between the County and 3rd party agencies.

Dear Sonoma County Veterans Memorial Buildings facilities visitors,

As you may know, we are in the grips of a global coronavirus pandemic. The Sonoma County Health Officer issued a Health Order directing residents to shelter in place Wednesday March 18, 2020, that has been further strengthened and extended until at least May 3, 2020; accordingly, all Veterans Memorial Buildings continue to be closed to any access until at least May 3, 2020.
