About Us

Milledgeville Baldwin County Allied Arts, Inc. was established as a Georgia nonprofit organization. Our mission is providing a broad range of inclusive experiences in the performing, visual, literary and heritage arts. We are here for all citizens, regardless of race, socio-economic status, religion, or cultural ideology! We have been providing programing since December 24, 1986.

We are governed by an 11-member board who are residents of our county. The Friends of Allied Arts works closely with the Board and the Executive Director to provide artistic experiences that are in line with our mission and that uplift the human spirit.


Our facilities include:

  • The historic Marlor House, a clapboard style home built in 1830. The parlor is available to rent for meetings of 10 or fewer.

  • Stage Performances and Indoor Events: Built in 1911, Allen's Market offers an open floor plan and platform stage for modern gatherings and concerts while maintaining the charm of its original significance as a community hub. This beautiful brick venue is available for rent for group of 60 or fewer.

  • Outdoor events: The Floyd L. Griffin Black Heritage Plaza adjacent to Allen's Market was updated with a minimalist design and contemporary seating in 2003. This is the perfect space to rent for live music or outdoor get togethers.
