Grayson Arts and History Center Mission Statement
The Grayson Arts and History Center is dedicated to preserving the rich history of Grayson as well as enhancing the image of the City of Grayson through the promotion of local Grayson Arts and History. Through its Center at the historic Kennerly-Cox House, adjacent to the City of Grayson Park and City Hall, it promotes the collection and display of Grayson memorabilia pertaining to Grayson's history as well as being an outlet and showcase for local artists of the community. On April 25th, 2015, the Grayson Arts and History Center opened its gallery which showcases local arts and crafts. The Center hosts tours and provides information for the community as well as area schools.
The Arts and History Center, 2070 Rosebud Road
The History Center started in 2001 when the City purchased the Kennerly-Cox House. Some renovations to the home were completed and the artifacts of Grayson's History were relocated there. Since then the History Center not only houses Grayson's history, but helps to bring an awareness to the citizens of our traditions, both old and new. If you wish to be added to the mailing list for the Arts & History Center, please call 770-963-8017. The Center is available for special events such as weddings on the grounds or in the gazebo. Please call for more information.
