Kurtz Cultural Center Programs

Kurtz Cultural Center For almost ten years, the Kurtz Cultural Center offered a diverse range of programs and activities with a number of community partners and traveling exhibits from larger museums. The KCC not only provided high quality exhibits with a particular focus on local history, but also offered a range of supplementary programs like lectures, children’s programming, appraisals from experts, and preservation techniques.

Several exhibits, namely “West of the Blue Ridge,” “A Community at War,” and “Valley Collectors” were well documented and exhibit photos can be viewed in PHW’s Picasa Gallery.
