About the Community Center 
The Center was founded in the 1990's when the Jericho Center Preservation Association purchased the building for $1 when the adjacent Center School closed its doors.  At that time the building was used as the gymnasium and a classroom.

Built in the 1850's as a church, it has also housed a toy factory, and today serves the community as a gathering place.

Many hours of volunteer labor and fundraising have gone into stabilizing and improving the building for public use, and the Center hosts many fun, educational, and entertaining events.
