Middletown, Ohio

The Pendleton Art Center’s 3rd location is in Middletown OH on Central Ave downtown. In the 1930s the original mid 1800’s Jacoby Building was demolished and a new structure was built housing the Joy Shop. The Joy Shop operated there until 1953 when the John Ross Store moved into the building and several store fronts were combined into one.

By 1964 the Mabley & Carew Company from Cincinnati had purchased the building and opened a large department store that operated until the City Centre Mall was constructed and opened in 1974. At that time Armco Steel Corporation took over ownership of the building and remodeled the interior into offices.

Rising Sun, Indiana

The Pendleton Art Center expanded into its 2nd location in Rising Sun Indiana in 2001. The Rising Sun Pendleton is located in the original Gibson Hardware Store located at 201-207 Main Street.

 
The Geo. B Gibson Hardware store occupied the site at the corner of Main and Poplar Street prior to the fire in July 1885 which destroyed that building and a large portion of the block. In August of that year, Gibson purchased the property, and erected the current brick building. In 1890 the “mammoth sign” on the Poplar Street side was commissioned. In 2009 the fading sign was restored to its original glory by local artist, Andrea Grimsley.
