As a non-profit organization founded in 1987, the Jefferson Arts Committee provides cultural and artistic activities that include concerts, student artist programs, special choral and instrumental performances, art and photography shows, summer gazebo concerts, and theatrical performances.   Proceeds from the sale will be used to further the activities of the Arts Committee’s performing arts groups -- The Jefferson Township Community Band, The Jefferson Township Community Chorus, and The Jefferson Community Players.  It will also help fund the Gazebo Committee’s efforts to offer free summer concerts, the annual Christmas in the Village event, and the scholarship fund for high school seniors going on to pursue an education in the arts. 

The George Chamberlain House, known as the Jefferson Township Museum, depicts life in the last quarter of the 1800s with each room reflecting how the Chamberlains might have lived during that period.  It will be open for visitors with its newest exhibit “Victorian Dress from Head to Toe” featuring pieces from the Society’s collection, pieces hand designed and produced by their costume department, and pieces from the private collection of their members.  Certified costumed docents in authentic period attire will explain the building’s history.
