Jarbidge Community Hall (Jarbidge Commercial Club)
One of Jarbidge's oldest buildings, the hall survived the fire of 1919 and continues as the town's community hall and museum. Measuring 23 by 60 feet, the one-story building is constructed like a barn, with bent trusses creating bays from front to back. Logs and chinking fill in the spaces between the bays to create the side walls; the same materials are used to complete the front and rear walls. A small, wood-frame gabled front entry replaced an earlier shed-roofed vestibule. Corrugated metal covers the roof.
The anteroom leads into a large meeting room with unfinished interior walls, exposed logs, and chinking. The ceiling has been left
