A grassroots group has taken the initiative to save a historic structure in the heart of Amherst, VA, and to repurpose it as a creative community center. Located in the middle of a vibrant village, the goal is to provide a gathering place for public events such as performances, meetings, classes and workshops, community forums, and a farmers' market. The ultimate dream is to provide studios and office spaces for rent.
Have you ever thought or heard anyone else say,
"If only Amherst had ...
... a place for young people to go after school and weekends?"
... a creative arts space?"
... a farmers' market?"
... a community center?"
... a place to take or teach classes?"
... a music venue?"
... a theater?"
... a place to rent a studio or office?"
... a community art gallery?"
... a distinctively, preserved historic building?"
So have we!
