The Ennis Negro Chamber of Commerce has revived the drive to complete a community center that came to a halt when the man who spearheaded the project passed away over 15 years ago.
Located on four acres at the end of South Sherman Street, near Lampasas Street, the 6,500 square foot building was erected in 1998. Walls, concrete flooring, the roof and plumbing were done when Raymond Rowden, the point man, died suddenly.
