A former firehouse on a creek now offers a full spectrum of arts, education and culture to south Hillsborough County. The Firehouse Cultural Center sits on land donated by the Ruskin Commongood Society, which was heavily influenced by the writings and philosophy of John Ruskin, a British art critic, social thinker and poet.
The Center carries on John Ruskin’s legacy and offers free community classes covering topics such as theatre, gardening and technology that were not previously available in the area. Donations raised will help low-income and military families to attend these programs, while also funding summer camp scholarships.
