The District Center For The Arts
The former Taunton District Court building was originally built in 1826 and you can feel the history when you walk by. The many court cases over the years saw American culture evolve from post-revolutionary life to the way we do things today.
This project is super important for many reasons. It maintains one of the sweetest sections in the downtown of the city of Taunton. The project will create a new art center that will provide local artists and musicians a state of the art facility for Bristol County and beyond.
We look forward to the fun and excitement The District Center For The Arts will bring to the businesses and residents of the city of Taunton.
