Preservation Project


Built in the winter of 1912 and

dedicated in the spring of 1913,

201 West Spring Street in the heart of Titusville

proudly served as a full service YMCA for over 100 years.

Complete with a diving pool and gymnasium,

this building touched the lives of nearly

every young person in Titusville.


In the year 2014 the building was vacated

in favor of a new facility and a rapid decline in condition began. 

In the Summer of 2020 the building was purchased by

preservationist and musician Nathaniel Licht

who saw the potential in the property

and who feared it would be demolished.


With the help of a few local volunteers, and skilled laborers,  

a long and arduous restoration/preservation began. 

Years of dated renovations were stripped away

to reveal the building's original architectural grandeur. 


Fall of 2023 welcomed the "Parkside Pockets:"

a unique assortment of artisans housed

under the former walking track in the gymnasium. 


While the project continues,

two very unique portions of the building are

ready for your special event. 

The gymnasium has been turned into

the multi purpose "ball-room,"

a space which can include state of the art

sound and lighting as well as

one of a kind facilities for your guests. 

The former lobby, now known as the "Walker Room"

or "The Parlor" is perfect for intimate gatherings

and private parties. 


We now offer in-house catering and

 work closely with the

BEST LOCAL food, liquor, and entertainment vendors to

ensure that your event is memorable.


We hope you'll consider booking your special gathering

in this HISTORIC and UNIQUE setting!
