Former KKK building becoming arts and community center

​​FORT WORTH – A coalition of arts nonprofits is purchasing a former Ku Klux Klan meeting hall at 1021 N. Main St. with plans to transform the building.​

The building will be named the Fred Rouse Center for the Arts and Community Healing, in honor of the Black Stockyards worker and Fort Worth resident lynched 100 years ago by a white mob.

Plans include a civil rights museum and exhibit, space for art exhibitions, services for LGBTQ youth, meeting spaces, an amphitheater, park, and outdoor market.

The purchase was made possible by a grant from the Rainwater Charitable Foundation along with support from numerous nonprofits.
