A spacious venue for performances and meetings is the historic Howard Center Auditorium. Formerly part of Howard High School, which opened in 1866 and closed in 1984, and served as the high school for black students in Georgetown during segregation.
Renovated in 2014, this venue can accommodate large groups of up to 900 for concerts, presentations and meetings. Part of Howard Gymnasium, which is adjacent to the auditorium, has also been transformed into a multi-purpose room. It can be partitioned off so it can be four different sizes to be used for a wide variety of activities including dances, receptions, reunions, company meetings and more. Howard Adult Center, which is dedicated to adult education, is on the same campus.
