Something exciting is happening in Shippensburg. A spirit of cooperation is blossoming among a broad network of people leading toward the development of a place where the community can come together to meet, build relationships and help each other reach our full potential together.
On the surface, Katie’s Place is an aging industrial space that once filled the air of the Shippensburg Community with the aroma of freshly baked bread. When Martin’s Bakery ended operations at this location several years ago, the building was purchased with the hope that one day, it would become a Community Center.
The building contains approximately 33,000 sq. ft. building on three floors, including:
– A suite of 7 offices including a restroom and a common room.
– Loading docks on 2 levels.
– A 20’ high area large enough for a Middle School basketball court
– Thousands of square feet of transformable space with multiple exits on all three levels
In reality, the possibilities of what can happen at Katie’s Place are limited only by our willingness to join hands and do something together.
