Groveport Town Hall was constructed in 1876 as a jointly-owned project of the Village of Groveport, Madison Township, the Masonic Lodge and the Odd Fellows Lodge. The building has previously housed a hardware store, dry goods store, the Senior Center and Madison Township offices.
Today, Town Hall has been restored to its 1876 beauty, offering two floors for reservation by individuals and corporations, a historical museum featuring a section on early Canal history and the famous Horse Whisperer, an art gallery, nature center, and a cultural arts center with arts and education classes for the whole family.
Cultural Arts Center
The Cultural Arts Center offers arts and education classes at Town Hall and the Department's separate facility for children, Crooked Alley KidSpace, 630 Wirt Road. An art gallery and historical museum are also located on the first floor. The Heritage Nature Center, located in the historic Log House in Heritage Park, offers hands-on programming on topics of natural science.
Calendars for monthly arts and education programs can be found at Town Hall, KidSpace, as well as the Southeast Library. For online calendars, please view the following:
