Winnie B. Williams was the oldest school teacher in Warrenton in 1933 when she came up with the idea for a needed reading room with a lavatory for teachers. In plain language, a rest room!
From that idea, there were meetings and fund raising and The Warren County Community Center Association was born with a 15 member board of trusettes - all men! This organization had its legal birth on August 24, 1934 when its charter was signed by the Secretary of State of North Carolina.
She died at the age of 102 on August 7, 1959, outliving her husband, three sons and two daughters!
