Our vision is a dynamic community of people from many backgrounds and cultures thriving together in The Waxhaws, across the country, and around the world.
Our mission is to help build that community by engaging people in our full history, celebrating its successes, acknowledging its failures, and seeking reconciliation and inclusion in the present.
We are closed and hope to reopen on Saturdays very soon!
