On June 15, 1897 John and Maggie Simpson donated land on which to build a Gathering place for residents of the valley.

This structure became known as the Clubhouse and originally housed the gun club. The Clubhouse also became a community spot for meetings, movies and all-night dances.

"...we all one-stepped, two-stepped, fox-trotted and waltzed and polkaed together in the old Clubhouse——a two-story log and frame building on the east side of the Square. The dance hall was upstairs over the drugstore. One evening during a dance Clause and I went downstairs for a soda. The thunder, the shaking and vibration from the dancing feet above were terrifying. But the building stood, and has stood, all the years."
- Authors, Margaret and Clause Murie
