The Yachats Commons is the community center in the heart of Yachats on the central Oregon coast.
The building was built in the 1930s and was used as a school until 1983 when it closed. Many locals fondly remember their early school days here.
In 1990 the building was purchased by the City of Yachats to be used as a community center and it now serves as host to such events as ballroom dances, civic and political meetings, exercise classes, plays, art shows, musical productions, conferences, workshops, the local youth center, and more.
Many private events such as wedding receptions, parties and reunions are also held here. The large, old classrooms and side corridors have a comfortable, homey feeling, and there is a large stage and gym (now multipurpose room). These are perfect for many activities.
Rooms are available for rent to individuals, groups, or organizations. We can host small groups or large events of several hundred. Theater and kitchen facilities are available on site and a large playground, lawn and picnic shelter are located behind the building. Lighting and sound equipment, as well as a very lovely grand piano area also available to rent for your events. Catering is available from local businesses, and lodging and restaurants are conveniently nearby.
