Carnegie Heritage & Arts Center
Located on northeast corner of 1st and Vincennes Streets at 110 East Vincennes Street in Downtown Linton, this important community resource is located in the former Margaret Cooper Public Library. Built in 1908, the Tudor Revival Style structure was constructed through a grant from Andrew Carnegie and located on the property donated by the descendants of the Humphreys Family and is one of four properties in Greene County listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Carnegie Heritage & Arts Center provides space for community meetings, music lessons, and art workshops; offers periodic art shows, history and cultural exhibits, and permanent collections of past artists who have contributed to the community, including a collection of memorabilia of the famous actors of stage and screen, Phil Harris and Alice Faye. The Carnegie Heritage & Arts Center also features the artwork of Ms. Dale French, graduate of Indiana State University and Linton-Stockton High School art teacher from 1968 to 2007.
