About the Community & Cultural Center

The Middle Smithfield Township Community & Cultural Center, built from 2019-2021, was created by the community, for the community, as "a space for good people to do good work, for the common good." 

The space is designed to be a space for:

  • The community to gather
  • An exhibit space for local artists and art organizations
  • A home for the Library of the Smithfield
  • Red Cross certified emergency shelter during emergencies

The Great Hall will serve as a local museum for revolving exhibits based on the anniversary of local events and the history of the area.

The space also serves as an event center for township and community-minded events, and can also be used for ongoing programming for residents by charitable organizations, such as:

  • Tai Chi classes
  • Blood drives by the Red Cross
  • Free services by local health networks such as mammograms
  • Classes taught by Penn State Extension, and more

Several community events that take place annually include Memory Makers, Veterans Luncheon and Person of the Year, and many more.

Enjoy the video and the memories, and enjoy the possibilities for the future!
