The historic Village Hall was constructed in the late 1930's as a WPA project and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Nationally, it is noted as the location where then Senator Hubert H. Humphrey made several speeches when he was running for President of the United States.  Locally, the building is known for its history of big band Saturday night dances and for the many wedding receptions that have been held there since its doors opened in 1940. Today, the Hall still used for wedding receptions, for anniversary parties, family reunions, benefits and other gatherings.  In early February the Hall hosts the annual and well known Lions Fish Fry and in the Fall, the Annual Waverly Volunteer Fireman's Pork Chop Dinner.
