The Allen Family Amphitheater and the Little Red Brick House blend history with the needs of a contemporary society and celebrates the value of music and art to the community.
The amphitheater is a multipurpose facility that will have 3 rows of concrete seating for up to 160 people and meets all ADA requirements. The majority of seating will be grass, molded into the hillside years ago, to accommodate unlimited blanket and lawn chair seating. This gives guests a real feeling of being part of the nature of the Old Lock and Dam Park.
In Newburgh, walkability is important. Allen Family Amphitheater is located along the Newburgh Rivertown Trail overlooking the Ohio River and ties together arts and entertainment, fitness, our farmers market; as well as, other community events, and shopping and dining.
If the facility is not reserved, we hope people will stage their own impromptu uses. It is meant to be used by all.
The Amphitheater and the Little Red Brick House is a perfect blend of our history and the contemporary. We celebrate our history here in Newburgh, but we also embrace today.
The Little Red Brick House is a 300 square foot structure was built in the mid 1800’s and was destined to be destroyed. People in the community and the State of Indiana Historical Society came to its rescue. The structure was moved December 2017 from one side of the Town of Newburgh to the other with its new home in the Old Lock and Dam Park.
