Along with hosting historical tours, Central School will also display an exhibit featuring one hundred years worth of memorabilia from the center's past. The exhibit will display class and faculty photos, images of the old classrooms, report cards, and yearbooks which will allow those who went to school in the facility to re-experience Central School. Friends of Central School will also dedicate the Central School theatre to the late Benjamin W. Mount, who was integral to the preservation of the facility.
