About the Space

The Local Archive is located downtown in the heart of Fort Wayne, IN. Founded inside of the renovated Old East End building (formerly known as the "Wayne Candy Factory,") this industrial urban structure was home of the famous "BUN" candies [you can read more about them here].  The history behind this building is sweet, creative, and innovative for its time. We're ready to see and be a part of the history that has yet to be established and created right here.

More than a studio space, The Local Archive is designed to help creatives grow and thrive in their own unique ways. We offer an open concept with tools every creative needs such as evolving sets and props to breathe life into new ideas. Although the space itself holds a richness, the most priceless piece is having YOU become a part of the local archive community.


Without you, we're just blank space.


Office and lounging space are available to help you intentionally prioritize your dreams. Professionalism and comfort are key factors in helping you succeed with any clientele, so other amenities such as dressing rooms and waiting areas are also provided.
