1. Civic Auditorium Marker
Inscription. The Civic Auditorium, erected in 1921 through a $125,000 bond measure, was dedicated to local veterans of the First World War. Portland architects Houghtaling and Dougan designed the Civic in the Neo-Classical Revival style. This monumental building complemented two earlier civic structures in the immediate neighborhood: the Carnegie Library (1910) and the Wasco County Courthouse (1912). Containing an auditorium, gymnasium, and banquet/ballroom, the building is a well-preserved early example of a multiple-use community center. Plan are underway to upgrade the building for use as a performing arts and multiple-use community center.
