Since it's historical beginnings, the People's Hall has continued to serve the community that founded it over 150 years ago. The People's Hall has been a meeting hall for the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the Grange and the East Fallowfield Historical Society. It has served Ercildoun as a church, polling place, museum and the ceremony location for the Ercildoun Academy.
People’s Hall is managed by a board of Trustees, which over time became sparsely populated and marginally functional. As a result, maintenance of the building was deferred, causing interior and exterior damage that needs to be stabilized and repaired. The board has now been restructured, and with new talent and energy, is committed to returning People’s Hall to its rightful status as an important community building. They are seeking additional recognition, support and funding to preserve this threatened property.
People's Hall has been delcared "At Risk" by Preservation PA and is listed among Pennsylvania's most endangered historic resources.
