The Carnegie Center

It opened in 1904 as one of the Carnegie Libraries. What was different about this one is that it had an auditorium as well. In 1958, the library and auditorium were boarded up due to the lack of funds to repair it. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 but it was not until recently that the library and auditorium were restored to its former beauty. The result is The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center which now has an arts education center, an art gallery, and of course the fully restored theater.
