The Edwardsville storm shelter was remodeled in 2000 and was converted into a community center for rental opportunities. The main function of the building still serves as the storm shelter for the Edwardsville Mobile Home Village during inclement weather, but when it is not in use for that purpose, it is a very nice and spacious banquet hall which seats approximately 300 people comfortably.
