In 1986, the Wimberley Senior Citizens* Activities, Inc. (WSCAI) embarked on a community based program to enhance the quality of life for Wimberley citizens.
Funds were solicited in 1986 to buy the Old Church Hall for a Senior Center and the Thrift Shop was built. In 1991, when 1.85 acres close to the Senior Center became available, WSCAI again solicited community donations and contributed substantially to purchase it. The Visitor's Center now is occupied by the Chamber of Commerce.
In 1997, the 1850's Winters-Wimberley House and surrounding 5.05 acres was purchased with community donations and grant funds. Wimberley Institute of Cultures now opens the house for educational and cultural purposes.
In 1999, WSCAI undertook its most ambitious stewardship project for Wimberley Village...the building of a community center on the Winters House property that
fulfilling the dream of "gathering place" for Wimberley citizens.
The new Community Center provides a meeting/eating place for clubs and organizations.
It also replaces the old Senior Citizens Center which was previously provided
free of charge as a place for seniors, quilters, domino and card players, artists, arts and
crafters. (Unlike the policy used for the older building, it is anticipated that
fees will now be charged for the use of the building for these activities.)
This center is planned to be a focal point for citizen interaction, a place where citizens can come together to recreate, share hobbies and common interests, or host artistic exhibits.
After many years, there is a place large enough for civic organization luncheons and classy enough for wedding receptions...and much more!
