Restoration and Reuse is the Goal of The Antoinette Hall Preservation Society


The Antoinette Hall Preservation Society (AHPS) is a companion organization to the 501c3 corporation, Southern Tennessee Area Arts Repertory (STAAR), and shares a Board of Directors with STAAR. The Society ​was born of the desire to restore Antoinette Hall so that it can once again become a center of arts and culture for the community and the region.

Leadership of STAAR and AHPS is undertaken by an Executive Director, Tammy Pierchoski, who acts upon the authority of the Board of Directors. The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors consists of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Immediate Past Chairman, Finance Chairman, Secretary and a representative of STAAR and of AHPS. Board members include individuals with backgrounds and expertise in education, the arts, tourism development, local business, historic preservation, communications, venue design, construction and nonprofit management.

Non-voting Advisory Council members are selected due to their interest in various aspects of the operation of STAAR or the restoration of Antoinette Hall. The Advisory Council is composed of individuals offer a level of expertise that assists in meeting goals, addressing issues or introducing the organization to a broader audience.

All Board members and Advisory Council members serve without receiving any monetary compensation.

While STAAR’s volunteers and advisors focus on the operation and management of the first floor facility, the theatrical organizations’ live performances, booking quality entertainment, expansion of the center’s arts education offerings and raising funds to ensure successful execution of the STAAR’s mission and goals, the AHPS has developed a plan to stabilize, restore and reuse Antoinette Hall. AHPS is taking a leadership role in raising funds to accomplish this goal and is playing a central role in developing the strategy for and managing the defined phases of the historic structure’s preservation plan.

A goal for the organization is to provide professional instruction coordination and training for STAAR and Antoinette Hall’s executive director, board members and volunteers and to develop resources for full-time staff consisting of an Executive Director, Marketing Director and Development Director.
