The co-working space was first created in 2013 after First Niagara Bank closed its Main Street location and donated its building to the town. The bank sent along $500,000 to the MCC Foundation as well to transform the space into a downtown destination for art, education, and enterprise. The Savings Bank of Manchester was folded into New Alliance Bank in 2002 and was eventually purchased by First Niagara, now KeyBank.
