Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of the Portia Club, Inc., is to restore the historic Portia Club clubhouse, located at 225 N 9th Street in Payette, Idaho, and turn it into a community center for non-profit clubs, performing arts, after school and other community based programs.

Description

On Tuesday, November 01, 1927, the Portia Club clubhouse in Payette, Idaho was first opened to the public. The building was the dream of a group of far-sighted women dedicated to the welfare and cultural well being of their community. Their dream to build their own clubhouse started in 1919 with $60 in proceeds from a dance the ladies had sponsored. Over the next eight years the women of the Portia Club slowly added to their clubhouse fund until they had earned the $4,366 cost of the building. The women of the Portia Club slowly faded away and their accomplishments were nearly forgotten, but seventy-seven years later the Friends of the Portia Club, Inc., are trying to save this once active clubhouse. Over time the building has been sorely neglected and without extensive restoration will be lost forever. It is our goal, with your help, to restore this lovely building and turn it into a community center for non-profit clubs, performing arts, after school and other community based programs.
