The Winterville Center for Community & Culture

About the Center

The old Winterville High School sat vacant for sixty years. The last graduating class walked through its doors in 1956. As the ravages of time took a toll on the once proud building, the roof began to leak, windows were broken. Mold and mildew covered the walls and no one seemed to care.

What a difference in 2016. Through the combined efforts of Winterville citizens and city leaders, a rebirth has taken place. The newly renovated building hosts a demonstration kitchen with a gas range, two dishwashers, a commercial ice maker, refrigerator, freezer and counter space everywhere. The Center also offers a dining and activity space, a ceiling projector, various classrooms, and a rotating art exhibit. Sit with your friends for a cup of coffee at our Marigold Coffee House. We invite you to enjoy our new facilities and share in Winterville’s pride.

So what is the Winterville Center? It is a regional enrichment center which serves adults of all ages. Seniors will always be a priority, with daytime senior activities and classes. There are opportunities to take trips, socialize, garden, and eat together. We do, however, offer much more than a classic senior adult center. Adults of all ages can participate in evening activities, classes, and a variety of other opportunities. The Center Lecture Series will feature experts in the cultural, arts and academic disciplines. The Art Exhibit is open now!
