Weatherby Hall is a community center maintained by the city of Miles. A variety of events take place here, from birthday parties to health workshops to large family reunions.
The Hall is a historic part of Miles. It was built in 1929 as a Ford dealership. Every September its owners would hold a big celebration to welcome the arrival of new cars. The dealership closed in the 1960’s and the hall was turned over to the city and used as both the headquarters of the volunteer fire department and a community center.
The fire department constructed their own building in the 1990’s, and now the hall is used entirely for banquets, wedding receptions, Quinceneras, arts and craft shows and other events.
Weatherby Hall is 50’ x 200’. The building can be used in its entirety or divided into two sections by a set of doors. The front section (50’ x 40’) has a kitchen and can accommodate up to 125 people. It can be nicely decorated and has central heat and cooling. The larger back section contains the restrooms. It has a concrete floor and is not heated or cooled. There is an overhead door in the back section.

Miles Young Farmer Show Complex
The Miles Young Farmers worked diligently to build a show barn for our local 4-H and FFA students. As time has progressed . . . the community has asked to use the facility for other events. It had no heating, cooling, flooring, restrooms or kitchen. It was just a barn with a caliche floor. The group has now added a cement floor, a kitchen with microwave, stove and refrigerator (these were donated by the Miles Young Homemakers) and restrooms have been added. A $5000 grant from the Federal Land Bank Association helped with the purchase of tables and chairs. In addition to all of the hard work by the members of Miles Young Farmers, the Miles Preservation Authority committed to a $2000 payment annually for nine years to help with the other items needed. This is an extremely nice facility that is available for rent.
