Our House Capital Campaign

Three decades ago, our community members, businesses, foundations, and the State of Massachusetts came together to make the dream of a “Firehouse Center for the Arts” a reality.

Donate to the Our House Capital Campaign

The Firehouse Alive! campaign raised the funds needed to transform our downtown facility from a working fire house to our beloved Firehouse Center for the Arts, which began year-round operations in August of 1991.

Today, we have the opportunity to honor the work begun during the renovation and continue our careful stewardship of Our House and our home for the arts.

Current Donors

The Firehouse wishes to recognize the supporters of the Our House Capital Campaign. We are exceedingly grateful for your support.

Our Progress

Construction has begun! With your help, we can reach our fundraising goal!

Planned Improvements

The Firehouse is investing $900,000.00 into Newburyport's oldest publicly owned building which we have leased as our artistic home for the last 25 years. Construction has begun and we'll be sharing updates on Facebook over the next 120 days.

Welcome!
