About Santiam Place

In 2003, a "For Sale" sign was noted at the former Church of God location. The church had purchased a school building for their growing membership. Upon inquiring about the building, it seemed to be the perfect place as an event center for our town. Sally Skaggs went to the City of Lebanon to see if her idea for a meeting center would fit into the City's zoning, and it did. After being purchased, the building went through several months of a renovation that included new paint inside and out, new ADA restroom, new small meeting room, new kitchen, new floor in dining area, etc. The back yard started out in shambles, with overgrown grass, garbage, burn piles, and ivy on the trees. The yard was gradually cleaned, trees and old stumps removed, new vinyl fence and landscaping installed. Each year we add improvements to the yard and to the building, including new lighting, patios, gardens, plants and shrubs to enhance the atmosphere for our guests.
