ThE Chilmark Community Center OFF-SEASON

Off-season, the Chilmark Community Center provides the setting for a variety of events, including pre-school classes, wedding receptions, clambakes and the Fire Department’s annual Christmas party.

The Center began as a handful of informal traditions which took place during the summer in private places around town. On Mondays, the Masons hosted a sing-along, on Wednesdays, the Leventhals showed movies in their basement, and Curly Carroll fiddled and called square dances at the Cornerway. Then, in 1956, through the efforts of the Town Affairs Council, an association of summer and permanent residents, and a gift of land from Roger Baldwin, a building was erected to house all these activities and more.
