Wood Block Open House

Saturday, October 28th
2:00 - 4:30 pm

CiviCure (Civic and Cultural Restoration) of Hoosick Falls, celebrates its acquisition of the Village's historic Wood Block Building with a ribbon cutting and open house on Saturday, October 28 at 1-5 Main Street in Hoosick Falls from 2:00 - 4:30. CiviCure will renovate the currently vacant second and third floors of Wood Block with gallery and performance spaces in its mission to use art and cultural events to build ties and promote economic revitalization in the community and throughout the region.

The Open House is the first opportunity for the public to see the magnificent performance hall spaces on the third floor of the block-long brick building since CiviCure purchased it in April 2017. These extraordinary, high-ceilinged rooms gave the building its original name of Wood's Block Opera House. A reception featuring locally produced food and beverages will be held in the paneled meeting room on the second floor.

There will be small-group tours of the upper floors during the event. We apologize, the second and third floors of Wood Block do not have universal access at this time, but a first floor gallery will be open for those who cannot ascend the stairs. The addition of an elevator will be part of a long-range planning and fundraising effort to be undertaken by CiviCure in the coming months.
