Beautiful and historic, this 150-year-old building once served an active congregation. However, over the years its membership decreased, and a dedicated group of community members joined together in a effort to preserve this building for future generations. In 2008, the Roxbury Arts Group joined those dedicated community members in a shared goal. Today, the Roxbury Arts Group continues the tradition of community gatherings at the Old School Baptist Church by offering a series of performances which highlight the phenomenal acoustics of the building in the bucolic setting of the Denver Vega Valley.

In order to remain respectful of our neighbors, we ask that those attending a performance at the Old School Baptist Church only park on the church side of the road. The parking spaces directly in front of the church are reserved for accessible parking.

Originally the site of the Blish home, the Chichester store was built circa 1890, it was one of three tall businesses at the corner of Main and North Delaware, eventually becoming the Ben Franklin Store. The business was operated by A. J. Chichester in the 1890’s as part of the firm the Chichester Brothers. This co-partnership continued until March 1899, when it was dissolved by the death of his brother. Mr Chichester conducted business as a local grocery store. In 1935 it was remodeled by Frank Traxler as a Benjamin Franklin five and dime store which is how it remained for many years. Eventually the building was also used as an insurance office and hair salon before becoming the Headwaters Arts Center. The Headwaters Arts Center is now part of the Roxbury Arts Group family, with a focus as a creative learning center and meeting the creative needs of Stamford and the surrounding area.
