Apple Tree Arts Restores Historic Facility

We're featuring a facility each day for the next 30 days and compiling them for Governor Deval Patrick. If you'd like to see your favorite cultural venue on this blog, email [email protected] with a picture and short blurb about the venue and why the Cultural Facility Fund is important for this facility.

The shared vision of Apple Tree Arts and the Town of Grafton includes the restoration of The Grafton Town House, a nineteenth-century historical treasure representing a true “back to the future” solution to an underutilized and neglected space.

The arts inspire creativity and tell us something about what it means to be alive as individuals as well as in our community.  Continued support from the Mass Cultural Facilities Fund will have a major impact on the success of the preservation of this architecturally significant building, to help maintain the integrity and character of the Grafton Common Historic District and to help foster our mission of enriching and connecting lives through the arts.  

- Donna Blanchard, Executive Director
