The Ball & Socket site was a working factory for almost 150 years, from 1850 until 1992.
It consists of 3.02 acres and 5 historic and unique industrial buildings housing over 63,000 square feet of interior space.
This place was a vital, local manufacturer, supporting generations of families in the area.

We see raw space as beautiful potential.
We will transform the neglected factory and grounds into an arts and entertainment complex, offering gallery, performance, education, retail and dining spaces.

The buildings will experience new life.
We will present curated art exhibits with a focus on contemporary art, foster arts-related community organizations and provide a venue for music, theater and the humanities.
