About Douglas Senior Center:

The Douglas Senior Citizens Centerhas a rich history and a promising futurein Converse County, Wyoming.

Initiallyorganized by five churches in 1972,socializing consisted of a monthly bingogame or card party in one of the churchbasements. Before long, tables andchairs had to hauled from place to placebecause no one church could accommodate the growing crowd.Once Irwin Towers - a HUD elderly andlow-income apartment building - wascompleted, the games moved to itscommunity room. Articles of incorporationwere drawn up . Meals began to be served.A permanent home was sought.Thanks to the city of Douglas donating landand some revenue sharing money from thecounty, a 2400 sq. ft. building was completed in 1980. Its kitchen, bathroom, two offices and multipurpose room were soon outgrown and 5000 sq. ft. were added on in 1983.Not stopping there, two more nonprofit organizations were formed to fund and construct the adjoining senior/disabled Payne Plaza apartments and to further expand the Center to a total of 12,000 sq. ft.
