Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Klamath Falls Ladies Community Lounge League was created in 1950 to provide a safe and comfortable place to rest for women and children. Its original location was on the 8th Street Downtown Klamath Falls. In 1983 the Lounge moved to a new location on the 7th Street, next to the newly created Ross Ragland Theater. During its 65 years of operation a few changes were made, such as allowing men to use the facility and providing a meeting space for civic organizations. All public funding was eventually eliminated. In 2015 an extensive review of other existing community resources in the downtown area was performed. The Ladies Community Lounge League Board of Directors met with community leaders and Lounge patrons. It was concluded that the Lounge was no longer supported or needed by Klamath Falls. The Lounge was permanently closed on November 1, 2015.
