The Pool was originally built in 1966 after a tragic accident took the life of a young boy. Ernst and Kathrine Wagner had a vision with the hope that everyone would learn to swim in a safer environment and therefore, funded the construction of the Ernst O. Wagner Memorial Pool. The pool continues to operate due to a fund the Wagners' set up and through various donors like the FRIENDS OF THE POOL.

The FRIENDS OF THE POOL are a huge part in keeping our pool afloat. Without their unwavering support and dedication, the pool would not be operational today. You can play a part in keeping our pool going by sending a donation to the Friends of the Pool, PO Box 438, Twisp, WA 98856 or online at www.foptwisp.org/donate-2. Another way to donate is by shopping via Amazon Smile. With every purchase you make a percentage goes to a charity of your choosing. Go to smile.amazon.com, log in to your regular amazon account, search and choose the Friends of the Pool in Twisp, WA and start shopping like you normally would. For questions regarding this please call 509-997-4081.
