The Community House

The Community House

The historic Community House is centrally located in downtown Birmingham across from Shain Park. Often referred to as “the heart of Birmingham,” The Community House brings educational, wellness and cultural enrichment to the people of metro Detroit. Each year, The Community House offers over 800 class options including everything from cooking and art to yoga and fencing. The Community House is home to the Early Childhood Center (daycare and preschool) TCH Dance Academy and the Sara Smith Youth Theatre. The public is welcome to join various Community House sponsored groups including the StoryTellers Guild, the International Cuisine Club, the Newcomers Club, the Senior Men’s and Club, TCH Women's Club and the Race Relations & Diversity Task Force. The Community House provides an exceptional facility for meetings, banquets, weddings and other celebrations. Multiple rooms are available for rental and can accommodate 10 to 400 guests. Outdoor events can be hosted on the elegantly tented Van Dusen Terrace. Parking is conveniently located at the Chester Street garage (at Chester Street and Maple Road) and in the metered lot on South Bates Street.
