Washburn’s unique story is preserved and housed in a magnificent brownstone structure known as “The Old Bank Building.” Built in 1890 by A. C. Probert, it is listed on both State and National Registers of Historic Places. The Washburn Cultural Center is dedicated to the preservation of this unique building while serving as a community gathering place and focal point. The Center is a place for cultural enrichment and an educational resource for the entire Washburn community.
The Washburn Cultural Center building houses an Antiques & Gift Shop, Art Galleries and the Washburn Area Historical Museum. We also provide space for Meetings, Receptions, Classes and Workshops.
Our Mission: A community center dedicated to fostering, presenting and preserving the cultural, artistic and historical life of Washburn and the surrounding area.
