On September 16, 1987 Genevieve J. Malmstrom signed the Articles of Incorporation. Thus began the Cloverdale Senior Multipurpose Center, originally operating out of the Cloverdale Grange Hall. Soon thereafter, Jim Teague began urging construction of a new senior center building.
Ten years later, the Cloverdale City Council led the effort to secure grants from several government agencies to construct a new senior center building. At the same time, citizen leaders started raising private funds toward the same end.
Under challenging economic circumstances, over $1,000,000.00 was raised through these two parallel efforts, public and private, and the new building at 311 North Main Street was dedicated May 16, 2003.
