The upstairs portion of the gracefully columned John Barton Payne Building, once home to the Warrenton Library, is used for library programs and as a community meeting hall. The room lends itself to hosting a variety of events. A large conference table sits before a fireplace (not functional), above which hangs a large oil painting of Judge John Barton Payne, who donated funds in 1922 to construct this building, the first permanent home for the Warrenton Library.
