Yes this was at MEADOWVALE COMMUNITY HALL, built c. 1871 (6970 Second Line W.)

Built on land donated by the Simpson family in 1871, the present Community Hall served as Meadowvale Village?s second school house. The first had been built in 1851 at the corner of Barberry Lane and Second Line. After the construction of this building, the first school was
converted into a private residence, and was lost during a fire in 1974. Unlike larger communities in the region, Meadowvale did not have a grammar school, so students wishing to receive higher education had to travel to either Streetsville or Brampton. In 1959, a larger, more modern
public school was built to service the community. Since 1968, this building has been used as a community hall. Extensive repairs were undertaken in 1980-81 to reinforce the roof and foundations and to provide an adequate water system. Additional restoration work was done in 1993.
