The Whitwell Education and Heritage Center (an a501c3 facility) will be the new home of Orena Humphreys Public Library, Whitwell Senior Citizen Center, Whitwell Veterans Center, Whitwell- Marion County Coal Miners' Museum, and Children's Holocaust Museum. 

Upon entering the gates of Whitwell Middle School, the new building will be located in the field on the right. The architectural plans are below.

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

People wanting to remember family members who were coal miners may donate $50.00 to have their name inscribed on a plaque to be displayed inside the new Whitwell-Marion County Coal Miner's Museum. Simply send the Miner's name as you want it on the plaque with a check to the Whitwell Education and Heritage Center at the address above.
