Community House Fun

  If you are new in town or are not familiar with the history of the Red River Community House, you should know that it has served the community of Red River in a grand manner, fulfilling the promise carried by its name which was chosen in 1940 when the idea of a central meeting place was born. There’s a bulletin board on the wall by the heavy wooden door on the front of the Red River Community House. It’s a good place to find out times and details of activities and events which are planned for the week at the classic big log building on Main Street, Red River, USA.

It’s in their charter. Now, 71 years later, RRCH is still a Not-for-Profit operation, a hub for fun and fellowship with a long list (400+) of activities, presentations, entertainment and social events for visitors of all ages. The idea for the Big Log Cabin first surfaced in 1940 when summer resident homeowners decided there needed to be a place, other than a saloon dance hall casino, where people could go for entertainment and social activities of a family nature.
