The Szilagyi Center for Visual and Performing Arts is the former Rowlesburg School. It now houses the Greatest Generation WWII Museum, a bridge exhibit on loan from the B & O Railroad, a pottery craft room, two sports museums, the Preston County 4-H museum, a room for quilters, a cafe, a catering kitchen and an auditorium. The building provides a venue for cultural and artistic events and festivals. This is the venue for the River City Festival in the spring and the Chestnut Festival in the fall and a Living History Weekend in June.
