Corvallis Arts Center building is on the national historic registry.
Originally built in 1989 as an Episcopalian church, the architectural
style is known as "Carpenter Gothic." The cross beams
and the arches are the reverse of a railroad bridge, reflecting
the background of the architect who was a railroad engineer.
The architect donated his services and a great deal of the building
was salvaged from an old school. Perhaps due to this unique
architecture, the Main Gallery has excellent acoustics, making
it ideal for performances and presentations.
The building has a unique charm,
a blend of its striking architectural features, the artwork
displayed in our two galleries, and the spirit of volunteerism
and service to the community that is an integral part of its
history and an ongoing tradition.
