StoneGate Arts & Education Center

The Heart & Future of the Community

Fostering the Community, Education, Arts, Business

    In January 2019, StoneGate Arts & Education Center changed locations, moving from the former historic Indiana Limestone Co. headquarters at 405 I St. to its newly constructed downtown site at 931 15th St. adjacent to the Lawrence County Courthouse square.

   StoneGate Center provides classrooms and office space to Ivy Tech Community College and Oakland City University, allowing local residents the opportunity to attend college classes in Lawrence County and obtain college degrees.

   Approximately 50-75 OCU students and 100 Ivy Tech students attend classes at StoneGate. Vincennes University will begin offering classes onsite in summer 2019.

   The new facility features 14 classrooms, a large state-of-the-art performing arts auditorium with cutting-edge audio-video equipment, two large computer labs, a smaller lab/assessment room/instructors' workroom, offices for college coordinators, study areas and gallery space.

   The City of Bedford, the Lawrence County Economic Growth Council, and Indiana's 21st Century Learning Centers provide annual funding to StoneGate. An executive director, assistant director and a custodian oversee and care for the building.

StoneGate Center Hours:

  • Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Friday, 8:30 a.m.-noon; afternoons by appointment.
