This building – the original Boynton Beach High School, built in 1927, is a treasured part of Boynton Beach’s rich history. Now, thanks to much thoughtful planning, this important building will serve as the Boynton Beach Cultural Center. When residents and visitors think of culture in Palm Beach County, Boynton Beach will be a major destination. There will be something for everyone interested in arts, culture, and community at this iconic venue located in the center of Town Square.
The City of Boynton Beach kept its promise to residents to preserve the original building and to maintain its unique character, while incorporating many new features to remake it into a relevant, productive, multi-use facility. Key architectural details have been revitalized, while some interior spaces have been re-configured to allow for maximum use of the 28,000 square foot venue.
Iconic symbols adorning the front of the building – a torch depicting enlightenment and learning, and a shield with laurels representing achievement – are not mere images from the school’s past; these are symbols of the Cultural Center’s future as a diverse visual, performing and literary arts attraction: a hub of cutting-edge cultural activity that will define Boynton Beach’s downtown district.
