The Crosby Community Center is a nonprofit organization supporting Seabeck, Green Mountain, Lake Symington, Lake Tahuyeh, Wildcat Lake, and surrounding areas of central Kitsap County, Washington. Our club is located in Seabeck WA in an area called Crosby. Historically, a post office called Crosby was in operation between 1891 and 1918. The community's name (and our community club) is a transfer from Crosby, England.
The Crosby Community Center is one of the oldest community clubs in Washington State. It is over 100 years old! The Crosby Community Center was originally named the Crosby Valley Club. The club was created on December 30, 1911.
Since inception, our club has been focused on events and “giving” activities centered around family and community. Our vision is to help "promote "unity in the community" by providing more events and activities close to home, help neighbors to meet neighbors, and promote charitable giving. One of our most notable events is Crosby Days, an annual event that celebrates our community's logging history. There is a parade, logging competitions, other activities and events, food, and a lot of fun!
Crosby Community Center meetings are held in a building that was once a one room schoolhouse. The club and property provide a backdrop for most club activities. The property is also used as a rental venue which helps to defer some of the cost of its maintenance. The building is available for weddings, bridal showers, family reunions, and other events.
For residents of the area, the Crosby Community Center is an important part of their lives and their family's history. Our members hope is to preserve the club for future generations to come.
We welcome you to attend one of our future meetings, activities, or events.
Come by and meet your neighbors!
