The building at 1274 Logan Street had many uses before becoming an intimate performance venue in the heart of Noblesville. It was originally built in the late 1800s in Ohio as an Army barracks and was donated to the Christ Lutheran Church after WWI. The church disassembled it and transported it to Noblesville and dedicated it in Noblesville in April of 1938. Local musician John Gilmore bought it in 75 years later, in April 2013, and started the ongoing renovations. In November 2015, a dedicated group of volunteers created an all-volunteer 501(3)(c) nonprofit cultural arts organization called Logan Street Sanctuary, Inc.
(LSS) that rents the historic space for its diverse programming. LSS has invested in more renovations to the building, and hosts music, literature, arts, and education event like monthly Second Saturday Showcase and Fourth Friday Young Musicians concerts, Third Saturday Comedy Showcase series, and annual Signature Events, like NICE (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo) and the annual publication and book launch of The Polk Street Review (Noblesville-focused anthology). LSS encourages music, literature, and art for all in the Noblesville Cultural Arts District by providing a wide array of cultural arts events and educational workshops.
