Henry County Schools has a new 1,000-seat performing arts center to showcase the creativity of students and give adults a place to hold conferences. 

The 49,000-square-foot facility is in the Fairview area and has been under construction for the past few years. It will be used to host some of the 400 events that are held annually in the south metro community at the original Henry Performing Arts Center in McDonough.

“This is a great day and marks another milestone for our district as we expand opportunities for our students and staff to showcase their talents to the community in a state-of-the-art venue,” Henry Schools Superintendent Mary Elizabeth Davis said.

The school system said activities will be moved to the new center, allowing the district to work on updates to the McDonough facility.
