The Dome School

Takilma Community Building

TCBIn addition to being the home of the Dome School, the Takilma Community Building (TCB) is a community gathering space and local event center, nestled in the woods approximately 9 miles south of Cave Junction. The TCB also serves as home to the Takilma Food Co-op and the Rangers After-School program (open to all, not just Dome School students).

Numerous fundraisers and events are held here every year, and the 40′ by 60′ hall is available for private rentals. Tables, chairs, and a stage are included in building rentals. For an additional fee, we have a sound system, as well as a commercial kitchen available for use. In addition, locals know this is the place to go to rent tables and chairs, sound equipment, or stage pieces, for their own weddings, anniversaries, and birthday parties.

If you’d like to rent the space, or any of the TCB furniture for your off-site event,  please contact us at 541-592-3911.

Please note that we’re undertaking a major expansion of the TCB. Use of the space may be limited during construction, but the end result will be a tremendous increase in the ability of the community to utilize the building. Click here to learn more about the need for the expansion and our plans.


To give a sense of what goes on around here, this is a list of recent and/or forthcoming events at the Takilma Community Building (FYI: this list does not include the numerous rentals of our commercial kitchen, nor of furniture, stage, or sound equipment rentals for off-site events).
