The Cabin in Vernonia, formerly known as the Scout Cabin, was originally built in the late 1920s for the Camp Fire Girls and was used for the Boy Scouts and other youth groups for several decades. The building was rebuilt by Friends of the Scout Cabin volunteers after the 1996 flood. Ready for business in 2000, it was managed by the same base of volunteers until 2019 when they donated the building to Vernonia Senior Citizens to us as an activity center.

The Cabin is now operated by Vernonia Senior Citizens, a 501C3 nonprofit organization incorporated in 1969, whose mission is to promote the health, wellbeing, and independence of seniors 60 and older through recreation, creative activity, support services, and information.
