The home of the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn has a long and rich history. The original facility, including Lucky’s Pool, was constructed in 1963, with the club officially opening its doors in June of the following year. In 1970, enough funds were raised to build an addition that included a gym, weight room, and locker room. Other modifications and upgrades were made over the years as Club membership continued to grow, including the admittance of girls as equal members in 1991.
During the 50th anniversary celebration in 2014, a campaign was announced that aimed to raise $8 million for the renovation and expansion of the facility. In September of 2016 these efforts paid off and construction began on what promised to be a beautiful, contemporary space.
