Hostess House was dedicated in 1919 to those who died in World War I. The building originally served Camp Fremont as a meeting place for serviceman and visitors. When moved from its original site to Palo Alto it became the first municipally-sponsored community center in the nation. It is the only remaining structure from California's World War I Army training camps. Designed by Julia Williams in 1918, it was dedicated one year later to those who died in World War I.
