Carlisle Arts Learning Center

The Carlisle Arts Learning Center (CALC) was founded in 1992 to encourage creativity and self-esteem through exploration and appreciation of the visual arts. The non-profit art center opened inside a three-story building at 19 N. Hanover St. in August 1998.

The 1912 building is located in Carlisle’s downtown historic district. CALC now offer classes and workshops in five main areas: ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, copper enameling and arts-and-crafts,” Morgenthal says. “We have courses for children, teens, and adults.” CALC instructors are experienced art educators or working artists themselves. Many classes are geared for beginners. Course fees are based on the number of hours of instruction.

Many area Scout troops, home schoolers, and church groups have scheduled customized workshops at CALC. Groups can arrange single or multiple sessions in clay, photography, or a variety of arts-and-crafts. Three weeks notice is usually required to make arrangements for these events.

In addition to the classes and workshops, CALC volunteers host open studios each week in clay and photography — from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Another facet of CALC’s mission is fulfilled through its art exhibit programming in it’s art gallery.  Six or seven shows are slated each year, and most feature works created by mid-state artists. Sculpted wood, paintings, pastels, basketry, ceramics, copper enameling, wildlife carvings, photography, and dolls are just a few of the media that have been showcased at CALC in recent years.

Union Fire Company

The Union Fire Company No.1 was organized to provide fire protection for the citizens of Carlisle in 1789, the same year George Washington became President of the United States. Today, more than 215 years later, the Union continues to provide service to the area. In honor of all the men and women who have faithfully served the company, a portion of our old fire station has been dedicated to preserving their history. The original Meeting Room and Engine Room have been maintained in near original condition and contain a large portion of our proud history.

The Engine Room houses a 1929 American LaFrance engine along with other equipment and artifacts from our past. The Meeting Room is filled with many items – some of which date back to our origin – which any firefighting buff will find extremely interesting. A few of those items are shown on our museum page.
