Mission Statement

The Page-Walker Arts & History Center was built as a hotel in 1868 by Town of Cary founder Allison Francis Page. In 1979, the Page-Walker Hotel was listed on the National Register for Historic Places. In 1985, a citizens group, Friends of the Page-Walker Hotel, joined with the Town of Cary to save the deteriorating building and restore it as an arts and history center. Today, the center is alive with classes, events, performances, meetings and receptions and the gallery exhibitions feature works of local and regional artists. The center is also home to the Cary Heritage Museum and related walking tours of the historic town center.

Description

The Page-Walker is fortunate to have an auxilliary group, The Friends of the Page-Walker Hotel, whose mission is to enrich the community by serving as guardian for the Page-Walker Arts & History Center, by advocating preservation of Cary historic sites, by archiving history and facilitating history education, and by promoting the cultural arts.
