We are embarking on a mission to create a vibrant hub that will be the heartbeat of our town – a place where history, education, and support come together. Our vision for the Whitwell Education and Heritage Center (an a501c3 facility) includes establishing a community center that will house Orena Humphrey’s Public Library, Whitwell- Marion County Coal Miners' Museum, Whitwell Senior Citizen Center, Whitwell Veterans Center, as well as The Children's Holocaust Museum. This ambitious project aims to create a space where knowledge, heritage, service, and companionship intersect, catering to the diverse needs of our community members across all age groups.

The cost to build the Whitwell Education and Heritage Center is estimated at over $2 million. While working on grants and fundraising, we are also accepting donations.
