The Arts Center Building

Erected in the early 1900’s, PRO’s building located at 68 South Main Street in Phillipsburg, New Jersey was used as a freight building.The building was oriented towards the railroad tracks located just behind the building.

Around 1930, the building had two uses:the basement level and street level became the Phillipsburg Post Office and the top floor was used by the Knights of Pythias, an international fraternal order.

In the 1950’s the Post Office relocated to a new building (its present location on Rt. 22 in Phillipsburg) and a pharmaceutical company, JT Baker, occupied the building.

In 1989, PRO purchased the building from its owner, Mr. Schick and the building became the headquarters for PRO and home to numerous Programs sponsored by PRO.
