We Invite You to Enjoy Your Special Event
in the Historic Charm of the Portia Club
On Tuesday, November 01, 1927, the Portia Club clubhouse, located at 225 North 9th Street 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. The clubhouse served as a center of social activity for half of a century,
but over time, the women of the Portia Club slowly faded away and their accomplishments were nearly forgotten.
Their dream clubhouse fell into disrepair and without extensive restoration would have been lost forever.
In February 2005, the deed to the Portia Club was turned over to The Friends of the Portia Club, Inc.,
a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation whose mission was to restore the historic clubhouse and turn it into
a community center for non-profit clubs, performing arts, after school and other community based programs.
The restored clubhouse would not only provide the county of Payette with an affordalbe community center, but
also highlight the importance of building preservation in the community and promote a greater appreciation
of the valuable role the Portia Club women played in the area and the influential history this historic building embodies.
TODAY the Portia Club is open to the public. With the help of volunteers, local businesses, in kind contributions, private donations, fund raisers
and grants the Portia Club has been turned into a safe, accessible, welcoming place that is now being enjoyed by the entire community. Please support
our efforts by holding your next event at the Portia Club and LET YOUR EVENT SHINE.
