The Trust Performing Arts Center

A stunning venue for music, theater, and dance in the heart of downtown Lancaster.

In 1912, Lancaster’s largest bank, the Lancaster Trust Company, finished construction on its new downtown headquarters. Sparing no expense in the process, the Lancaster Trust Company built one of the region’s most stunning buildings, a Beaux-Arts masterpiece from the imagination of Lancaster’s leading architect, C. Emlen Urban.

A century later, Mr. Urban’s architectural treasure is being re-imagined as The Trust Performing Arts Center – a stunning new venue for music, theater, and dance in the heart of downtown Lancaster.  We invite you to join our re-imagining as we seek to create a venue that will elevate our humanity and encourage excellence among artists.

The Trust represents Lancaster Bible College’s return to its roots in downtown Lancaster.  The college was founded in 1933 just blocks from The Trust.  We are excited to once again be a part of this thriving history and have the opportunity to impact Lancaster’s historic arts district.
