Donald E. Nielsen Community Center

Ground-breaking for the new $5.4 million Donald E. Nielsen Community Center took place September 13, 2006. Gifts from several community donors helped fund the project. The facility was completed in 2008. The approximately 44,000-square-foot center features a large hall for banquets, wedding receptions, social gatherings, meetings and small conventions. A West Point Auditorium Foundation was formed to raise money for this privately funded project.

Walnut Street west of Highway 275 was redesigned to a divided street curving to the entrance to the new center. That part of the street was renamed Anna Stalp Avenue.

The building includes the Shirley and Jake Weber Education Center, which houses distance learning and regular classes from Northeast Community College. It includes a science and computer lab, two distance learning classrooms and four flexible classrooms.
