The Farnham Dudgeon Civic Center was named in honor of Farnham Dudgeon (February 16, 1912 - January 23, 1985) in recognition of his principal role in the development of the Capital Plaza. Dudgeon was a driving force behind the complex throughout it's conception, construction, and completion.
As mayor, city commissioner and leading supporter of numerous other civic efforts, Dudgeon dedicated his life to the betterment of this community.
