Buckner Center offers a 250-seat theatre, an exhibit hall/conference center, arts studio/workshops and a cafe/lounge for your dining pleasure. The Center has a rich heritage. It is one of the early McClellan buildings designed and constructed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. This historic former Post Recreation Center has undergone major restoration/rehabilitation to become a regional venue for the arts. Three separate buildings, linked by an arcade of arches facing the ceremonial parade ground, compose the 32,000 square foot triad of concrete and masonry structures built in 1936. Buckner Center is designed to attract artisans and craftspeople in drama, music, dance, painting, film and associated arts. Receptions, conferences and social events are beautifully accommodated in a variety of architectural spaces to be found here. “Preservation of the important historic architecture and its rehabilitation for public and private functions was a primary goal,” according to owner/architect Julian Jenkins, “and I am excited about the cultural and educational benefits that may result from it for this region of the South.” Buckner Center is located at 412 Buckner Drive in the heart of the Spanish Colonial Historic District .
