Located at 412 East 3rd Street, the former Moscow High School, built in 1912, is a three-story, 30,000 square foot building located within an historic residential neighborhood, not far from the City's commercial core. It is an excellent example of classical style architecture built during the Progressive School Era, with classic details in brick and white terra cotta that are unique to the area. This landmark is a perfect home for Moscow's first multigenerational, multipurpose community center.
The 1912 Center was purchased by the City of Moscow in 1997 from funds donated entirely by private citizens. Phase I of the project (Great Room, Kitchen and Plaza) opened to the public in October 2001. Phase II (Senior Center and Friendship Hall) opened June of the following year. Currently the 1912 is under the management of the Heart of the Arts, Inc. For rental information please contact the Heart of the Arts, Inc.
