History
Steeped in a vibrant history, the WCR Center for the Arts was erected in the 19th century in the Callowhill District of Reading, PA on the site of the city’s first post office. After serving as the Wyomissing Club for many years, the building became home to the Women’s Club of Reading in 1919.

In the summer of 2004, several community leaders came together to form a new entity, the WCR Center for the Arts. The organization was formed for the purpose of preserving this historic building as a unique performance and exhibition venue for the community.

At the center of this stately building is an auditorium with an acoustical quality unmatched anywhere in southeastern Pennsylvania. A superb vintage Steinway grand piano, purchased by the Woman’s Club, is still showcased in concerts today. The venue also boasts a gallery and reception hall, perfect for exhibits, meetings and various entertainment events.

Mission
WCR Center for the Arts is a nonprofit community organization focused on promoting the arts, serving the community, and enhancing the revitalization efforts in Reading, Pennsylvania. Our primary goal is to preserve the facility to serve the Reading community as it has done for over 150 years.
