CHARLTON — Step inside the old farmhouse or barn at 4 Dresser Hill Road, and you might not believe that just two years ago the buildings were abandoned and run down.

The town-owned structures that date back the 1860s are just a glimmer of what they used to be — but that's a good thing. The vacancy there has been filled with art and creativity, and the buildings now make up the Charlton Arts and Activities Center (CAAC), the town's home of the arts. February marked the center's second year anniversary, and a celebratory open house is planned for the end of this month.

"We opened to give the public a chance a to express themselves in all different creative mediums," said chair of the Charlton Activities Council Sandy Bacon. "We've come a long way but we are still evolving."
