About The Winterville 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 re-birth has taken place. The building is proud once again. Come visit us and see the modern demonstration kitchen with a gas range, two dishwashers, a commercial ice maker, a refrigerator, a freezer and counter space everywhere. Sit with fifty of your friends at round tables in the dining and activity room. Watch a movie or a PowerPoint presentation shown through the ceiling projector. Take an art or a creative writing class in one of the brightly colored classrooms. Walk the hallway art exhibit.  Enjoy our new facilities; share in Winterville’s pride.

So what is the Winterville Center? We are a regional enrichment center which serves adults of all ages. Seniors will always be a priority. Daytime senior activities and classes abound. We take trips, we socialize, we garden, and we eat together. In this sense, we are a classic senior adult center.  We are, however, much more. All age adults participate in evening activities, classes, and a variety of other opportunities. The Center Lecture Series features experts in the cultural, arts and academic disciplines.

Enjoy our new facility; share in Winterville’s pride.
