History of the Darrington Community Center
The Darrington Community Center was built in 1954 with donated time, skill and materials from caring residents of the Darrington Area. The construction, past and present use of the building define the generosity, spirit of cooperation and heritage of the residents of this remote, rural community. The Community Center is the heart of Darrington activities.
The Center, which houses a gym, meeting room and kitchen, was built to serve the societal needs of people living in a remote area of Washington State. At the time the gym was built, high school basketball was a mainstay in the logging community and today remains the town’s primary venue for athletic events. The meeting room and kitchen are available to rent for weddings, baby/bridal showers, reunions, potlucks, tribal meetings and other events. Please call for availability and reservations.
The Darrington Community Center is also a designated Red Cross shelter in the event of an emergency.
