The Cortez Cultural Center, founded in 1987, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide an interactive forum for the community’s artistic, cultural, educational, historic and natural environment interests. It has become a home for artists, cowboy poets, archaeologists and musicians. Since its inception, the Center has provided programs to thousands of residents and visitors to the Four Corners area and has demonstrated its goal of diversity in programming. It currently has over 450 members and receives more than 35,000 visitors annually.

The Center is located in an historic building built in 1909 to house the E. R. Lamb Mercantile. The original Mesker Brothers’ pressed-metal facade brightens the front of the building.
