The little town that could and did
This once bustling farming community nearly faced extinction with the mechanization of agriculture leading to fewer job opportunities in the area and State Highway 26 was re-routed to bypass town. Despite the negative media surrounding the situation, a handful of local residents with a deep passion for the community teamed up with regional organizations to find a way to breathe life back into LaCrosse, WA.
LaCrosse Community Pride is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing the community of LaCrosse, Washington. Despite our town's tiny population of 310 residents, we have been able to band together and rebuild the historic brick store, improve the bank and cafe, add a library and a community gathering place, and add businesses along the way to create 15 jobs in LaCrosse.
