Building Bridges - The Weaver Hall Project

Weaver Hall

Weaver Hall was formerly the Faidley Building in Grand Island Park. In 1977 when the park was used for another purpose the trustees authorized the building and the remaining Faidley Funds to be moved to Camp Moses Merrill. Judge Weaver from Grand Island made it possible for the building to be moved to the Linwood site.  The structure was dismantled, moved and enlarged by the men of First Baptist Church of Grand Island under the supervision of O.D. Gilpin of Grand Island and Clinton Nash and Keith Nash of Camp Moses Merrill.

Weaver Hall has remained the hub of summer camp and other events since it’s arrival. The countless memories made here make this building a true camp treasure.  Many loving hands have prepared food in the kitchen.  The meals, fellowship and worship shared within these walls continue to be life changing.

Weaver Hall has remained much the same for 45 years with only minor upgrades. It is time to give this beautiful building some much needed attention.
