About Bell Tower Cultural Center

The former First Baptist Church (Bell Tower), built in 1898, was given to the council by members of the church to be used as a center of learning for the community in 2013 as a gift. The former sanctuary has retained its 1898 flavor with outstanding stained glass windows, oak pews, and a small stage area.

Happening at Bell Tower Culture Center

Art, events, lectures, and artistic performances of all kinds have and will continue to keep the Performance Hall (formerly the sanctuary) alive. Areas for meetings, offices, private art studios, and classroom space have returned the Annex to a usable venue. Classroom space and private artisan studios take up the space on the second floor. The third floor is currently used as a clay area known as the Clay Addicts Attic, with classes or studio rental time available.
