It has been said that, at it's best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.- William Murtagh, First keeper of the national register of historic places
The Harrington Center for the Arts plans to renovate The Harrington School into a center for the arts, including a state-of-the art theatre. The Harrington School was completed in 1903 and is a registered historic landmark. It stands as one of the finest and most intact buildings of its architectural type in the state of Utah. It is a building filled with memories and the heritage of American Fork City. With the renovation and theatre addition, The Harrington School will once again be a shining jewel in Utah Valley.American Fork has long been an area where the arts have been supported and flourished. We believe that through the renovation and building of the Harrington Center for the Arts & Theatre, North Utah County will have a community venue that will promote a culture of creativity and learning. Please donate today to help save the historic Harrington School!
