Our History

Lloyd and Myrtle Hoffman were long-time and beloved residents of Manzanita. Upon their passing, their trust directed that their home and assets be used to start a community center for the arts and education. Founded in 2004, the Hoffman Center is the still-developing fulfillment of their dream–a place to nurture artistic endeavors–creating, performing and appreciating.
