The Berea Fine Arts Club (First known as the Three Arts Club) was founded on October 25, 1933. There were 30 women present at the organizational meeting. Quoting from their constitution, “the object of the organization is to further the study and development of the fine arts and to promote and encourage an interest in the cultural life of the community.” The membership consisted of art, music, and drama. The first president was Mrs. Rose Collier. The Club acquired the Little Red Schoolhouse on Bagley Road in 1935. Membership had grown too large to continue meeting in member's homes. After renovating the schoolhouse and property, the Club had its first meeting there on September 15, 1937. In 1938 the Club added a literature group to their membership. Then, in the early 1940’s a kitchen and indoor plumbing were added to the schoolhouse. During World War II, the Berea Fine Arts Club became a member of the Women’s Field Army. The schoolhouse was used several nights a week as a recreation center for servicemen. The building has also been used through the years for Golden Age groups, wedding receptions, parties, dance classes, and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. It is currently the meeting place for the Berea Jaycees and a local church group. The schoolhouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. The original Club met for the last time at the schoolhouse on June 21, 1984. In August of 2001, John Harmon, in conjunction with Mayor Biddlecomb, began work on the Arts and Humanities Council of Berea. People felt there was a need for an art organization in or near Berea. After months of organizational meetings, the Berea Art League was formed. Several women from the original Berea Fine Arts Club attended a meeting of Berea Arts League. They approached the group with the idea that the Berea Arts League, which did not yet have a constitution or bylaws, could simply join the Berea Fine Arts Club and adopt and change its constitution and bylaws. The idea was put to a vote and, on April 18, 2002, the Berea Arts League became the Berea Fine Arts Club, Inc. The Club currently has more than 140 members in areas including art, music, drama, literature, and art appreciation. Members reside in Berea as well as many surrounding cities.
