On August 4, 2005 The Oregonian reported, "The Baha'is of Beaverton have built a spiritual assembly hall, the faith's first meeting center in Washington County. The nearly 4,000-square-foot building is not big by mega-church standards. But this community, which serves folks living within Beaverton's borders, has only 125 members. Like most Baha'i groups worldwide, they typically meet for worship and smaller meetings in member homes. Members expect to celebrate a grand opening for the $700,000 building in late September or early October."
