The Great North Woods Center for the Arts in Columbia, New Hampshire offers indoor and outdoor performance spaces for concerts, plays, art shows, arts and crafts activities and a variety of community gatherings, as well as overnight accommodations for visiting artists and performers.


The Center is also the home of the three major North Country arts groups – the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts (est. 2003), the Connecticut River Artisans Group (est. 2004), and the Carriage Lane Players (est. 2014). All three organizations maintain their individual 501 (c) (3) status.

The GNWCA promotes cultural and social assets and enhances the region’s natural resources. The area we live in is a scenic wonderland possessing bountiful natural beauty and resources. It serves as a canvas for artists to share their creativity with others, and to inspire artists performing before a live audience.


The property is listed on the New Hampshire Register of Historic Places.
