Bill Myler property developer, subdivided the land in Gordon and Sorrento Rd’s and donated the corner portion to the people of Empire Bay.​

The hall was built in 1920 according to the Gosford Librarian who researched Council records. There were no grants in the 1920s, but the hall was built by volunteers who have now passed on. They made use of donated new and used materials collected from local citizens and business people.
