Building Rental

First Central’s beautiful building, designed by architect George Prinz in the English Gothic style, offers rental space to community organizations, arts groups, and area professionals. For a century we’ve been a cultural anchor in the Blackstone neighborhood. We enjoy our close proximity to restaurants, shops, hotels, and major corporations.

Most of our spaces are handicapped accessible.  Free Wifi is provided, and we can accommodate many digital presentation needs. Here are some building details:

  • Our Sanctuary seats 600 and has been utilized for vocal and instrumental performances, recitals, and concerts. The beautiful stained glass windows in the choir loft were designed by America’s most eminent stained glass artist of the early twentieth century, Charles Connick. Our Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ was installed in 1947 with the great Marcel Dupré performing. It now contains 61 ranks with 3,746 pipes.
  • Our smaller grand hall, with its soaring Gothic beams and warm wood paneling, may be reserved for meetings, recitals, theatrical performances, exercise classes, or other events.
  • Classrooms and parlors of various sizes may be rented for parties, meetings, workshops, exercise classes, or conferences. The Reuben Gaylord Library with is large bay window might be the perfect, beautiful setting for your group.
  • The Art Room provides a unique space for your group to explore its creative side.
  • The Gym is available for sports, exercise, and dance. A juggling group meets there weekly!
  • Cooking classes have been held in our Kitchen.
  • Needing to host a party for family and friends? Consider the cozy Fireside Room.
