The Kelly Center offers a community space open to everyone with free Wi-Fi. The New Avenue Cafe serves a light menu during daytime hours and during evening performances.  The Kelly Center is available to rent for private events.

According to county records, the building was constructed in 1900.  During renovation we strived to capture the original architectural character on the exterior and interior.  We also worked to reclaim and repurpose materials and include eco-friendly features to help reduce our carbon footprint.  Many sustainability features were funded by a grant from Green Mountain Energy Sun Club.

FLOOR is the original wood floor, antique heart pine, now 120 years old.

STAGE is made from flooring harvested during renovation of the rear section of the building.

EXPOSED BRICK at the stage is the original construction and separates our space from Katz Pharmacy.

SLAT BOARD PANELS on the wall were reclaimed from the former retail space.

GARDEN WALL SHELVES are made from original 2 x 4 studs harvested during renovation.

FOUNDER WALL is made from wood pallets that delivered construction materials.

GLASS PLAQUES on the Founder Wall are cut from front façade panes harvested during renovation.

RAIN BARREL outside collects water from downspouts and irrigates plants on the Garden Wall.

CUSTOM WOOD TABLETOPS were made from Walnut Trees that fell in Haverford Township.

WATERLESS URINAL in the restroom can save over 40,000 gallons of water per year.

DUAL FLUSH TOILETS in the restrooms conserve water by offering light or heavy flush options.

ROOFTOP SOLAR PANEL powers the lighting at the Garden Wall.

EXTRA INSULATION in the ceilings and walls for soundproofing, acoustics and to maximum energy efficiency.

What is The Kelly Center?

The Kelly Center will be a permanent gathering space where adults, teens, and families alike can enjoy the arts in a safe and comfortable setting.

Currently, the vast majority of performance spaces in Havertown are bars.  This means that families, teens, and children don’t have a community performance space that meets their needs.

The Kelly Center will be an indoor public gathering space where youth and families can participate in the arts in a drug and alcohol-free environment.  At the Center, we will encourage young student artists to develop their skills and participate in performance opportunities… and seniors, adults, and families to enjoy the arts together.
