After months of work and a community survey, on Nov. 6, 2023 the Lafayette City Council adopted the name Arapaho Center for this historic building. This building, built in 1892, was the former home of the Congregational Church. Funded primarily by Mary Miller, the founder of Lafayette, the building has functioned as an emergency hospital and a library. Restored and remodeled it is now used as a community theater.
