The Community Center is in the process of establishing a list of licensed contractors that we can use for various projects we need. If you are a licensed contractor, or know of one, that would like to be considered for projects at the Center, please send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" or leave a message at 530-389-8310.
We are currently soliciting bids for the repair of the deck surrounding the historic Hearse House at the corner of Sacramento and Main Streets. We would like this project completed by the end of the year, if possible.
The Dutch Flat Community Center is located at 933 Stockton Street in Dutch Flat, California. The Center, originally called the Dutch Flat Community Club, was established in 1952 to provide a range of services to the small communities of Dutch Flat, Alta, Gold Run, and nearby area residents, along U.S. Interstate 80 in Placer County. The Center is managed by a seven-member Board of Directors, elected to one-year terms by the Center members.
The Center is supported mainly by annual memberships. Membership is open to residents or landowners in the area from Alpine Meadows to Emigrant Gap. Associate membership is open to anyone, however, and the Center has many members who live far from Dutch Flat. Associate members may not vote in Center elections or serve on the Board.
In the early 2000s, the Community Club became the Community Center, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to the DFCC are fully tax-deductible, less the value of any consideration received for a donation, like a ticket or a meal.
Most of the Center's activities and events occur in the Dutch Flat Community Center, formerly the Dutch Flat Grammar School. The building was built in 1898, and the last class graduated from the school in 1962. After 1962, Dutch Flat children began attending elementary school in Alta.
Through the efforts of Eleanor Bridges, Janet Fonseca and other founding members, the Center was able to purchase the school building from the Alta/Dutch Flat School District in 1964. The Center maintains the building, and leases the surrounding property to Placer County. The County's Park and Recreation Department maintains the building grounds, as part of the county's recreation program.
We encourage you to visit Dutch Flat and the surrounding area, a beautiful mountain region rich in Gold Rush era history. Click here for further information on Dutch Flat's history, and here for information about the Golden Drift Museum, in Dutch Flat.
