Richter Arts Center

The historic c.1918 Stanley Richter House

was given to the City of Danbury in 1968

by Mrs. Irene Richter, with the stipulation

that the City could only use the site for arts and recreation activities. In 1971 the

Stanley L. Richter Association for the Arts

was established to promote cultural affairs,  including visual arts, drama,  music, poetry, handicraft and creative writing at the site.

A musical theater company, Musicals at

Richter, Inc., has been continuously

operating from the lawn at the rear of the

house since 1985. Current plans call for

restoring, renovating and expanding the

historic house to enhance its use as a

cultural resource for the entire Danbury area.
