About the Historic Banner Elk School:
The Historic Banner Elk School is now known as the Cultural Arts Center of Banner Elk and is open to the public. From its unique beginning in 1939 as a Work Progress Administration (WPA) venture to help the local economy and its citizens, to its final days as a public school in 2011, the Historic Banner Elk School (HBES) has been a fertile, nurturing environment for thousands of youngsters and families.
Today, one wing of the school is the Community Learning Center, and is home to Mayland Community College’s Banner Elk branch, which offers a wide range of classes. The Banner Elk Book Exchange pioneered the historic school’s renovation and is located in the Cultural Arts Center. Through its “Bring a Book, Take a Book” concept, children’s activities, book discussion groups, Author Talks, and many other programs, the Book Exchange has become a valuable addition to the Banner Elk community.
In addition to CML Magazine, tenants in the Cultural Arts Center include the Ensemble Stage, a professional theatre company, BE Artists Gallery, Greenway Creative, a graphic design agency, Buckhead Banner Studios, a photography studio, and Avery Community Yoga Studio.
