Harwich Cultural Center Rental Information

Harwich Cultural Center
Rental Information

The Harwich Cultural Center was originally built in 1937 as a Middle School, and then expanded and renovated in 1990. With the formation of the Monomoy Regional School District (Chatham & Harwich), this facility has become surplus now that the new Monomoy High School Facility is operational. 

Our mission is to repurpose the Harwich Cultural Center as rental space for groups and individuals to engage in recreational, social, educational, cultural, community service, civic and governmental activities.

For more information about renting a space in the middle school, or to make a rental request, please visit the Cultural Center Facebook Page HERE and by email at culturalcenter@townofharwich.us
