Our Story

Woodbridge is proud to have a building on the National Register of Historic Places. The Barron Library building, built in 1877 and located at 582 Rahway Avenue in Woodbridge Proper, now serves as a center for the arts for residents of Woodbridge Township and Central New Jersey. The beautiful Richardsonian Revival style building, with its stained-glass windows and clock tower, provides an intimate setting for a variety of arts activities. Musical performances in a variety of styles, a forum for poets, readers and audience alike known as PoetsWednesday, and art exhibitions by nationally renowned artists and craftsmen in addition to the work of notable New Jersey artists have graced the gallery of the Barron Arts Center. Recently, the building was made disability accessible so now everyone can enjoy the programs, including the special exhibitions such as the annual model train display which serve to provide something of interest to all community members.

With the support of the Woodbridge Township Cultural Arts Commission and under the direction of Cynthia Knight, the Barron Arts Center offers programming to the public, free of charge. Patrons seeking opportunities to volunteer time and services can get involved with our "Friends of the Arts" volunteers, a support group for the Barron Arts Center.

For further information or to be on the mailing list for upcoming events, please call the staff of the center, weekdays from 8:30am - 4:30pm at 732-634-0413.

Gallery hours are Mon-Fri 11:00am-4:00pm,
