  • There are a number of naming opportunities available and your donation is tax deductible.

Be a Part of the Journey

The journey has been long, but while the Alexander Black House has rested a few years on a grassy knoll on Draper Road,  a clear and compelling vision for its future has been crafted. Once restored, the magnificent Queen Anne Victorian will be the permanent home of the Alexander Black House and Cultural Center. A small section of the home will be dedicated to the memory and life of Alexander Black, while the remaining space will be a vibrant and engaging community center. Visitors will enjoy the welcoming atmosphere and elegant surroundings of this historic venue; thought provoking exhibitions of art and history; meeting and special event accommodations; lovely gardens; and cultural heritage programs for all ages and interests.
