The building that currently houses the Casa de Cultura, began to be built on January 29, 1922, in a solemn act where the Spanish Railway Association, the former owner, laid the first stone. It was intended to be a school, a meeting place and a shelter for railway orphans, a fact that took place with its constitution on October 14, 1923, being this building the third in Spain to be built with these characteristics. In 2023, this building, popularly known as “La Ferroviaria”, will celebrate its centenary.

After many vicissitudes, always maintaining the educational activity, in the eighties it was acquired by the City Council of Alcazar de San Juan to turn it into a meeting and training space to promote and encourage artistic and cultural values in the city.
