A decision made at the May 1989 Eagle Bend City Council meeting brought The Spot to life. Several individuals had been contemplating the idea of providing a tobacco-free, chemical-free environment for youth to socialize for some time. With the decision and permission to use the old library/museum building in Eagle Bend, the idea became a reality. It opened on September 26, 1989. When The Spot first opened the age group included many teenagers. Now the primary age is fifth and sixth grade and they hold dances once a month.
