Affectionately known as the "Barn," the Performing Arts Center was originally built in the 1890s as a horse barn for use on a Glocester, RI farm. The Barn was given a new lease on life in 1981 when a group of historic preservation students and faculty rescued the deteriorating structure. Piece by piece, the Barn arrived on campus in 1983, ready for its revival. The unique building, which opened in 1986, now houses a theatre, rehearsal studios, and faculty offices.
