Through the medium of art and culture...

We believe our sense of community is enhanced by quality art and culturally rich events. It is the chosen medium for all our activities as historic education, historic preservation, and historically sound economic development can be rather uninteresting. We hope you embrace our efforts to bring more art and culture into our community as we preserve and protect our our history.
