McCelvey Center & Lowry Family Theater

The McCelvey Center is the original site of the Yorkville Female Academy founded in 1852 and includes the 500-seat Lowry Family Theater.

Check the website for concert dates and admission. On the McCelvey campus is the Historical Center of York County, which serves as the county’s archival repository and provides opportunities for genealogical and historical research. The Historical Center, also home to the Southern Revolutionary War Institute, is open 10am–4pm Mon–Fri and the 2nd Sat. of each month from 10am-4pm.
