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 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 from several sources. The capital budget from 2015-2016, signed into law by Gov. John Kasich, included $357,500 for the art park. The balance of $242,500 came from another allocation of state funds designated for the arts. Additional donations were provided by; The Timken Foundation and the Ohio Mutual Insurance Group.
