Arts of the Pamlico pays off mortgage on Turnage Theater

Quote:
An Eastern Carolina arts organization is starting the new week on a high note.

The Arts of the Pamlico made paid its final installment on the mortgage for the Turnage Theater this month.

Located in downtown Washington, the historic building has changed hands many times since opening more than a century ago in 1913. It was turned into a movie theater in 1938 and was an anchor for the town for more than 50 years before people started flocking to larger theaters.

Since that time, the theater has exchanged hands several times and undergone extensive renovations. The mortgage payoff means that the non-profit can focus its efforts on programming and sustainability efforts. The theater's upkeep is an expensive task -- the electric bill alone is more than $3,000 per month, according to Executive Director Debra Torrence.

The Beaufort Arts Council -- which is now known as 'Arts of the Pamlico' -- bought the theater in 2012 for $210,000. The money to pay for it has largely been raised through individual, private donations.

Board Chairperson Linda Lane said, "It makes us a much stronger organization, sustainable organization, we don't have that obligation that we have to pay; the history of this building by the way, is that it went into foreclosure just three years ago and we didn't want that to happen again."

A payoff celebration will be held Thursday at noon, when the Arts of the Pamlico board expects to get the deed to the property from Crescom Bank.

Spirits are moving in Little Washington - Business North Carolina

In addition to a gin distillery/pub/hotel opening soon in downtown Washington, a new brewery is also under construction.

Interesting side note in the article: Washington's population hasn't changed since 1990, remaining just below 10K. I wouldn't be surprised if there starts being very small upticks in the coming years, even if it's just around 50-100 people per year or merely 500 from one census to the next. Those gains would be considered wins for Washington, seeing how most of their new residents are retirees (meaning retirement-focused towns tend to have long obituary columns, gains are negated by deaths).
