Built in 1906, the space embodies the character, charm, and grit of an older time that inspires artists and performers.

Our event space supports a variety of functions, including exhibits, filming and photo shoots, multimedia performances, pop-up business sales, community activities, virtual streaming services, and more. Contact us if you are interested in renting our space.

Currently, The Cheshire is home to local multi-media artists, makers, creative entrepreneurs, and production groups, including: Gateway504, wxxds.x, The Overachievers, Barrio.Edit, and DJ Bo.
