History

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places – September 7, 1984, the JACC was formerly two separate churches built in the 1800’s and located at other locations. In 1921 the two churches were literally drawn by horses to the current location and united to become “Community Church” in Post Falls. The church became the central gathering place in the community. City founder Frederick Post was in charge of the church choir.

Community Building Partners, Inc. was formed in 1988 and dedicated itself to the restoration and maintenance of this historic structure. Renamed to honor Susan and Duane Jacklin, who were so instrumental in spear heading the restoration project. The Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center continues to be a gathering place in the community.
