The  Old Church is a nonprofit, non-religious, concert and event venue with a rich history and a dynamic 21st century identity. Built in 1882, the structure served as a church until 1967 when the congregation had dwindled and the building faced destruction. A band of dedicated citizens got together, saved the building, and helped form a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our mission is to preserve and celebrate The Old Church as a historic and vital architectural structure; and, to best utilize its inherent qualities as a performance space by creating, fostering and promoting programs that reflect and enhance the artistic and cultural life of the community. Today the Old Church is a contemporary, comfortable space that is wheel chair accessible and air conditioned.

We encourage you to read more about our history, but we’re most excited about our present and future. The Old Church is run by a creative and dedicated staff and a passionate board of directors. We work to restore and preserve The Old Church, making sure that it continues to be a vibrant cultural and social space. With contributions from supporters like you, we continue to invest in building improvements  and offer an exciting program of events for audiences of all ages.
