The Ozark Heritage Arts Center (OHAC)
The OHAC is located in a building constructed as a community hall in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration, or WPA. It later became used as a gymnasium by the Leslie school system. Inside the arts center is the 350-seat Killebrew Theatre. It gets its’ name from Rex and Daphne Killebrew who remodeled the old Leslie school gym in 1992. They gave it the name of the Ozark Heritage Arts Center.
