ARVADA, Colo. - Sept. 21, 2016 - PRLog -- The building that stands at 5665 Olde Wadsworth Boulevard is iconic, a treasured piece of Arvada's past. As the oldest building in Arvada, it began as the Clear Creek Valley Grange, a place for the community to gather and promote its well-being, for economics, for politics and for agriculture. It has been a place for social debate, for religious ceremonies, but most importantly, it has been there for the people of Arvada. After the Grange, it became the Festival Playhouse, yet another beloved landmark in the history of this beautiful town.

Though the Playhouse has closed its doors, Carmen and Mark Sample, alongside their devoted team at Sample Supports, have restored the historic building. "We take great pride in restoring a community's landmark and turning it back into a community gathering place, which is what it was always intended to be as a Grange," said Carmen.

The structure has been kept intact, though the interiors have been updated with top-of-the-line audio-visual capabilities to suit the needs of our technology-driven society. The ceilings are covered in beautiful, hand-finished gold and the chandeliers are Swarovski crystal, gracefully designed by the hands of their staff. The space is carefully furnished, with space for up to 200 people and a stage, perfect for anything from corporate presentations to the perfect band for your wedding.

More than just a historic landmark, Gallery 1874 works closely with several partnership businesses. This location will offer integrated and competitive employment opportunities for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities with Sample Supports, and award-winning meals will be offered through catering from Samples World Bistro. This tightly-knit group of partnership businesses work to provide life and job experiences for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The bounty of opportunities this can provide is like magic, bringing those in need to a place where they can engage with the community and learn new skills. When the gallery is not hosting an event, the Crystal Joys boutique will be open to the public, where they will offer their beautiful handmade jewelry.

The calendar for Gallery 1874 is already filling up fast, as people are eager to celebrate in this unique space in Olde Town Arvada. Sample Supports' Marketing Specialist, Lizzy Wolff, was exuberant. "Planning a great event takes time, so book with us as soon as possible! Bring us your milestones, your celebrations, your happiest days - we'll make your moment historic."

Gallery 1874 is located at 5665 Olde Wadsworth Blvd, Arvada, Colorado. Visit them at, or call them at (303)952-7814. For information on bookings and rates, email them at
