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. It is now the heart and soul of the
greater Yachats community, being host to such events as ballroom
dances, political meetings, exercise classes, plays, musical
productions, the youth center and much, much 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
