History

Housed in Historic Kilpi Hall, this former Finnish Meeting Hall was built in 1899 by Charles Gran and the Kilpi Temperance Society, comprised of Finnish immigrants. It became the heart of the Finnish community in Conneaut. They gathered here for music, dance, theatre and fellowship. In 1975, a group of about 30 people in Conneaut had been discussing the need for a community center. The proposal to buy Kilpi Hall was presented to City Council, area businesses, and other interested parties, and was well received.  Each member donated $10 each which became the first membership campaign.  With a specialized loan, the Center's officers signed a mortgage agreement in July of 1976 and the Conneaut Community Center for the Arts was born. Kilpi Hall is once again a place to gather for music, dance, theatre and fellowship.

The Center offers a versatile setting to host formal business meetings, weddings, anniversary parties, baby showers, club meetings or a family reunion. Let us help you plan your next event or meeting. The main hall gallery holds 80 to 100 people, meeting rooms hold up to 35 and a private meeting room holds up to 30. Our newly renovated main entrance greets our patrons with a warm, well-lit entryway and we serve wonderful meals from our newly remodeled kitchen facilities.

As of winter of 2012, we formally changed our name to The Conneaut Arts Center.

CAC partners with several businesses throughout the county to bring artistic enrichment to the community.
