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.
