Dublin Arts Council is housed in an elegant French-Eclectic styled building that was constructed in 1941 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1946 Eleanor and Andre Gelpi purchased the home. Mrs. Gelpi was a pioneering businesswoman and local champion of the arts. She made the residence famous through many gala events she hosted here. The house sits atop sloping riverfront acreage, offering a stunning view of the Scioto River.
The city of Dublin purchased the property in 1999 and turned the home into a community center dedicated to the arts. Dublin Arts Center opened to the public on March 17, 2002 as the home of Dublin Arts Council.
Dublin Arts Council leases the property from the city of Dublin.
