macc_front2The MACC is located in the historic building that once served as Signal Mountain’s first grammar school. The Signal Mountain Grammar School building, constructed in 1926, features a beautiful exterior comprised of mountain stone.

In May 1999, with the completion of a new school, Nolan Elementary, the Signal Mountain Grammar School was closed. It was then that a small group of dedicated citizens banded together to research, plan and raise funds to transform the old school building into a full-time art center for the Town. In 1999, the Mountain Arts Community Center opened its doors. In 2001, the MACC building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
