Midtown Moments: Morean Center for Clay

By Lee Britain

Midtown History Revived, Renewed, Rejuvenated

Built in 1926, this historic Midtown St. Petersburg building was once the Seaboard Freight Depot. According to General Manager Valerie Scott Knaust, “everything that came into St. Pete once came in through this space.”

The historic building has been turned into the Morean Center for Clay which is located at 420 2nd Street South. “We are nationally renown, but locally no one knows about us,” Knaust said. The center offers free classes every Sunday from 1pm-3pm, in hopes of expanding the Midtown communities interest in the arts. According to Knaust, they also offer summer camp for children, four major workshops and on Friday nights at a price of $25 adults can join in “if they bring a towel, their favorite beverage, and a sense of humor.”
