History

The property is the former site of the Schines Theater.

Joe Armbruster led the charge several years ago to acquire the property. The theater had been vacant for several years following a fire. The goal of the group, Bucyrus Theatre, Inc., was to restore the theater and make it an arts center.

“I’m excited about it,” Armbruster said. “It’s not what we intended when we got it, but it will be for the arts. It’s something that will help the town and that’s the important thing.”

Funding for the project came for several sources. The newly enacted capital budget for 2015-2016 signed into law this week by Gov. John Kasich includes $357,500 for the art park. The balance of $242,500 is coming from another allocation of state funds designated for the arts. Additional donation were provided by The Timken Foundation and the Ohio Mutual Insurance Group.
