The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts Center

Last update [September 25, 2023]: The Buttonwood Tree is a two room establishment. The performance area is flat, with ample room for mobility equipment, there is no elevated stage. All areas are wheelchair accessible. There is a significant incline from entrance door to lobby. I’m not sure why we still have this, but I will see if we can eliminate this.
