Howland Cultural Center
The Howland Cultural Center, often referred to as 'The Jewel of Beacon,' was designed by famed architect Richard Morris Hunt in 1872 for his brother-in-law, Civil War General Joseph Howland and his wife, Eliza Woolsey Howland. It is a Beacon-based nonprofit organization with a multifaceted nature. We promote arts and culture, both by producing our own events and by presenting those sponsored by others. We preserve and operate the historic 1872 Howland Circulating Library building as a center for arts and cultural activities. We also make space available to selected community groups and rent space for private events.
