Who We Are
We are the Clarkston Community Center, located in the heart of one of America’s most diverse, international communities. We celebrate and support this diversity and honor and recognize how the richness and strengths of many different cultures can help build a sound and progressive city.
We are a gathering place for art, education, recreation and community building for Clarkston and Greater DeKalb County residents: long-time Georgians, transplanted Americans, established internationals and newly arriving refugees. In 2011, we served nearly 20,000 people with a wide variety of programs, classes, sports, arts, recreation and special events.
About Our Home
The Clarkston Community Center was established in 1994 in the historic former Clarkston High School. This classic style structure, constructed in 1924, was renovated throughout in 2007 with updated systems and reconfigured space to accommodate the needs of a thriving community center. At the same time, the renovation honored the history and maintained the character and beauty of the building that has been a landmark and important part of Clarkston for nearly nine decades.
In addition to the original classroom/auditorium building, the large complex includes an activity field for sports and other outdoor events, acreage for community gardens and an additional structure for future development. The auditorium and stage, now called Angora Hall, is a perfect place for private parties, weddings, receptions, performances and other events. Visit us and see for yourself!
