Waterfall Arts, Montville Campus

This exceptionally beautiful site once served as an extension of the original home of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Waterfall Arts now offers summer art courses and residencies at both the Montville and the Beflast location.

Waterfall Arts is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) contemporary arts center located in Belfast and Montville, Maine.

Waterfall Arts began as the Arts Center at Kingdom Falls in 1998 when founders Alan and Lorna Crichton acquired the Kingdom Falls property in rural Montville.

This exceptionally beautiful site once served as an extension of the original home of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. After forming a Board of Directors and making necessary improvements to the property, the organization began offering summer art courses and residencies in 2000, and in 2002 received its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS.

The purchase of the former Governor Anderson School in nearby Belfast in December 2005 allowed the organization to expand its outreach to year-round. It began its first programs at the Belfast site in spring 2006 and celebrated its Grand Opening in the building on September 30th of that year. At the time of its Belfast expansion, the Board voted to adopt a new name, Waterfall Arts, to embrace both locations.

The name of the organization derives from the natural waterfalls that grace the Montville site and serves as inspiration for our mission of creating community in harmony with nature through the transformative power of the arts. Feel the Power of Art!
