Originally founded in 1990 as the North Coast Cultural Association and was located in the former St. Patrick's Catholic Church. In August of 1998, a devastating fire consumed the old church and the organization was left homeless. After spending the better part of a year on clean up, debt settlement and reorganization, NCCA was gifted with the use of a small building at 125 N. Fourth St. in downtown Chesterton. This empty building has now been converted into the intimate, 50-seat theater, which has been a performance venue for many artists in the Northwest Indiana region.
