We’re updating The Hamlet of Beavercreek website so if you see something weird in the next few days, don’t worry, we’ll be back to normal soon with a website that’s easier to use. Until the website is completed announcements will be here. If you are, or know someone, who is knowledgeable about WordPress or JetPack, please contact Web@Beavercreek.org
All meetings of The Hamlet of Beavercreek are open to the public. Community and Town Hall meetings are held in-person at the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District building, 22055 S Beavercreek Road, as well as interactively on Zoom. To participate using Zoom for any meeting you must register with Zoom to receive an on-line link to the meeting by email.
The Hamlet of Beavercreek is a community group organized by the citizens of Beavercreek and Carus, recognized by Clackamas County, that aims to enhance the livability, sustainability, and functioning of our community, and to direct community planning to preserve the rural character of our area.

What is going on with the Carus Historic White Schoolhouse? Here’s an update.
The Friends of the Carus Historic White Schoolhouse Committee has been working nonstop to accomplish the following:
- Working with a local and reputable company to move the schoolhouse to its new location as a contribution to the community.
- Working with Todd Iselin, Iselin Architects, providing architectural support as a contribution to the community.
- Working with Clackamas County to secure the appropriate permits to move the schoolhouse.
- Working with Justin Jones, Attorney, to assure all details are appropriately addressed as a contribution to the community.
- Working with the Canby School District to secure historic schoolhouse items, and communicate consistently to assure support. The historic trees located next to the schoolhouse will remain and be preserved.
- Creating a website to feature historic, current, and future information of the schoolhouse to include a avenue for donations, volunteering, and support.
So, where is the schoolhouse going? Great question!
Cindy Lou Evans with Evans Farms has graciously offered to purchase the schoolhouse and provide a future home next to the Evans’ historic barn just off Mueller Road (a mere one-half mile from the schoolhouse’s original location). The goal is to offer this historic building to The Hamlet of Beavercreek community as a center to meet, enjoy theater, hold classes, sell local products, celebrate, and enjoy community.
Once permits are secured and moving and set up plans are in place, additional details will be provided. We look forward to continuing the story of this 1926 schoolhouse that has served our community for nearly 100 years! Please stay tuned for additional information and requests for support.
