The Atascadero Printery Foundation is a local non-profit organization that owns the historic 1915 building, one of the first buildings constructed in Atascadero. The building was damaged in the 2003 San Simeon earthquake and marked red. Proceeds will help the foundation repair the print shop and support the foundation’s goal of turning it into a community center with a performing arts center, museum and space for events, meetings, classes and activities.
