The Community Center for the Performing Arts is currently in the process of acquiring and installing four original historic street lamps around the historic Woodmen of the World Hall. These are authentic original street lamps used in Downtown Eugene in the early-mid. 20th century.

Donor Recognition Program

Community support is essential as we work towards installating the historic streetlamps around our building. Each donor will be recognized with a permanent name plate attached to the base of one of the streetlamps.  Each streetlamp has a rectangular base that will hold 4 name plates, recognizing significant donations. Contributed funds will go towards the refurbishment and installation of the historic streetlamps around the W.O.W. Hall.

Donation Level: $1200.
Plates available: 12

Thank you to our Pioneers!  
Thank you to four generous donors for contributing to the "Pioneer" phase of our historic streetlamp fundraising campaign.  Pioneer funding will enable the Community Center for the Performing Arts to bring the historic streetlamps into our pocession. Thank you to two private donors, KLCC staff members and KRVM staff members for contributing to this project.

Thank you for your interest in this project and funding consideration.

We believe that the installation of these streetlamps will have a significant impact on our building and our neighborhood!

Neighborhood Benefit:

  • Educate the community about the historic character of the Woodmen of the World Hall
  • Improve public perception and elevate the attractiveness of the West 8th Ave. neighborhood
  • Address security problems

The Eugene Historic Review Board and Downtown Neighborhood Association are partnering with the Community Center for the Performing Arts/W.O.W. Hall on this exciting project. 

Ongoing Historic Street Lamp Maintenance
The Community Center for the Performing Arts will be maintaining the exterior of the historic street lamps. The Historic Street Lamp Donor Recognition Program coupled with CCPA!s fundraising efforts (i.e. grant funding and capital fund drive) will develop a substantial maintenance fund that will ensure proper care for the lamps for many years to come.
