Background
A Note from the President: In 2013, I began looking for a place to teach guitar lessons and have a recording studio. This old church in the historic district of downtown Noblesville was a rundown mess, BUT it had church pews and a stage area. So I bought it and began remodeling (extensively, and ongoing). About this time, my hometown of Noblesville began creating an arts and culture district, so, for once in my life, my timing was really good. With the help of City Hall, Nickel Plate Arts, Noblesville Main Street, The Noblesville Preservation Alliance, and local artists, musicians, neighbors and friends, I turned this humble little old church into a “Sanctuary” for artists of all kinds: painters, potters, poets, spoken word, singer/songwriters, etc. As a songwriter myself, I have a special affinity for singer/songwriters and LSS proudly features the best local and traveling songwriters. If you aren’t tired of reading yet… a little about the building. It was not built in Noblesville, and its origins, despite research, are still mysterious. We do know it was originally built as a WWI Army barracks in Ohio and was donated to the Christ Lutheran Church after the war. They disassembled it and transported it to Noblesville and dedicated it in Noblesville in April of 1938. I bought it in April, 75 years later. In November 2015, we became a 501(3)(c) not-for-profit organization. Logan Street Sanctuary's goals are to be a sanctuary for artists of all kinds and continue to thrive as a part of the Noblesville Arts and Cultural district. Our main space seats up to 80, with a performance stage for singer-songwriters (original and public domain music only). LSS is an excellent listening environment for "house concert style performances. Primary seating is in newly re-upholstered and padded church pews. Unlike bars and restaurants, we do not (and never will have) TVs hanging on the walls. We don’t serve food or alcohol. We encourage polite listening for the performers' and the audience’s sake. We are very proud to be an art gallery hanging some of the best local art in the area. There is a small recording studio available for demos/EPs. We have a nice baby grand piano. The space can be rented for other types of performers, music and/or vocal lessons and recitals, small weddings, receptions, and meetings, etc. ~ John Gilmore President, LSS, Inc. .
