Welcome to The Yellow House 

Community Center for Learning

The Yellow House is a non-profit community center for learning, located in a beautifully refurbished Victorian house in the heart of downtown Palmer. Our goal is to provide an exciting new venue for residents of the Quaboag Hills and Pioneer Valley to gather and enjoy learning together as well as sharing their own expertise with others. Join us and sample a wide variety of classes, workshops, speaker series, and special events held in a relaxed, informal setting. Rooms in the Yellow House are also available for community groups to gather.


The Yellow House thanks the foundations and businesses that donated during 2014. Your support enables us to offer a wide range of classes, Speaker's Series, community events, and a vibrant center for people to gather in downtown Palmer.
