Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance

The Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance (EC-CHAP) represents an important cultural resource serving communities and visitors to Eastern Connecticut and beyond. The Center’s purpose is to bring a heightened awareness to the significance of local history and historic preservation; provide an appreciation for the visual arts through education, creation and display; and offer performance events and opportunities for creative expression in music, film, dance, literature, and theater.

The EC-CHAP is a member-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates the Gardiner Hall Jr. Museum and hosts an assortment of performances and events at The Packing House, both located at The Mill Works, an historic landmark in Willington, CT. Revenue is generated from memberships, sponsorships, ticket sales, program and rental fees, and tax deductible donations from individuals, families, and organizations. Plans are under review to develop a formal gallery space where the works of local, regional, and nationally known artists can be displayed. A variety of creative programs, workshops, classes, and artist-in-residence opportunities are also being planned as part of a unique educational exchange.
