The Pohangina Hall is located in Pohangina Village on the corner of Pohangina Road and Finnis Road.
The first hall was built in 1885 and located next to where the current hall is. Adsetts mill donated flooring for the original hall. This hall was used for dances, local concerts and visiting troupes. During the First World War the hall was used to farewell soldiers, patriotic activities and to welcome home the war veterans. Unfortunately this hall had to be demolished after a major fire and the current hall built in 1934.
