The Old Stone Church is in the Old Town Historic District in Bend. The property is designated by City as Historic. Originally known as the First Presbyterian Church it was built in 1912. At the time Bend was part of Crook County. Deschutes County was formed from the western half of Crook County in 1916. The first service of the First Presbyterians was held in the nearly completed church in 1913. In the beginning the church was actually referred to as the stone church because it was the first church in Bend made out of stone. The tuff stone came from the Bend Company Rock Quarry on the west side of the Deschutes River.

Various church groups owned the property until 2006. At that point with a change to private ownership the re-invention of the Old Stone as both a church venue and event venue began. Uses were gradually expanded to include music concerts, public presentations, film, fundraisers, graduations and other community events. Many local people stepped up to develop the new Old Stone Performing Arts Center. It has currently been dedicated to hosting and producing events that enrich the cultural vitality of the community by serving its artistic and educational needs.

The Old Stone Church Events Center will cease operations at the end of 2017. The cottage is leased through March of 2018 for $950/mo.
