The Halle Cultural Arts Center strives to be Apex's leader in promoting cultural and artistic awareness and appreciation through concerts, showcase performances, visual arts presentations, special events, community engagements, facility rentals, and educational programs.

Description
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is currently programmed with instructional and leisure classes and performances by the Town of Apex Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department. Staff also oversees the rental of the venue for weddings, receptions and other private events. The main floor boasts art galleries and the second floor a 135 seat auditorium. While square footage has been added, most historically significant architectural features have been restored and preserved.

General Information
On June 6, 1911 the Town of Apex purchased the property for $750 from the Sellers family. Bond issues raised the funds for the structure, and the Apex Town Hall was completed in 1912 at the cost of $7500. The building served numerous functions from the start: a meat and vegetable market, jail, fire house and storage room occupied the first floor, while the second floor housed the mayor's office and a 300 seat opera house. Atop the building was the fly gallery; a mechanical room used to raise and lower the curtain for productions. Throughout it's place in history, the building proudly stands as an anchor to the commercial district and a representation of Apex's "Golden Age."
