MILTON — Steve Gibson has a big vision for the former Eagles lodge in downtown Milton, with hopes of it being an art and entertainment hub for the borough.

He recently hosted an open house for the Art Academy of Milton, an 11,000-square foot collaborative art space housed in the former Eagles’ building at 38 S. Front St. in Milton.

It is an offshoot of a similar venture in Lewisburg, Arts Underground.


“I like that Milton is becoming a really booming town as far as art goes,” Gibson said. “There are a number of places that have just recently opened up and there are more coming, to kind of really help reinvent the downtown, I’m happy to be a part of that.”
