Timbers Event Center, "the most substantial and well-crafted building in Eureka," is host to the Players performances. The Timbers is a registered historic building that was restored to revive a community tradition in the northwestern town of Eureka, Montana. The original Community Hall was conceived by it's rural residents to meet their social needs and reflect their cultural values. Starting in January 1935, a local theater group and other residents began to raise money for the development of a unique two-story structure-- boasting a finely detailed, impressive example of rustic-log construction. The Great Depression hampered fundraising efforts, yet four years later, the visionaries were able to secure half of the needed funds through donations and volunteer labor. With the involvement of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) construction was completed in 1943 to serve the community for a few generations before becoming a retail space. A local family who value history, tradition and hospitality, purchased the building in 2021.  With a commitment to revive its purpose as a welcoming place to gather, they funded the year-long restoration of the aging infrastructure and maintained its structural integrity while improving the rustic-elegance. The venue is host to weddings and special events and The Gathering Place Coffee Shop.
