About Backus Community Center
Backus Community Center is a host to a wide variety of events. Our building was originally built as a school in 1936. With thanks to a group of devoted locals, it has been preserved and turned into the heart of our community. With an auditorium, a number of varied sized spaces, and a wide selection of equipment - we are able to support just about any wants or needs. With a rich history, and a beautiful art-deco style to the entire building, we are sure to visually please. We also consist of a large team - how large? Well we are a community building after all, so we have a long list of members, ready to assist with any event, in any way they can. Whether it be ushers, ticket sales, concession sales, bar sales, etc. Also, as previously mentioned, our building was originally a school. Because of that, we have a full-service kitchen, with a team prepared to cater and serve. With our capabilities to offer multiple spaces, many arrangements, and diverse options - we have the best event space and team in the borderland.
