Little House, Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center

Facilities at Little House Can Be Rented

Little House, Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center, is now open to everyone!

Little House, the Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center, was established on April 1, 1949. The present building was dedicated March 21, 1954 for the primary use of senior citizens. The new wing was dedicated in 1958 and an auditorium and craft room addition was dedicated September 18, 1966. Renovation of the entire facility was completed in September 1995 through the generosity of Mervin and Roslyn Morris. Further refurbishment, with the addition of Jilly's Garden, was completed in 2011, including expansion of art galleries.

In 2004 Little House became an "Activity Center", no longer simply a center for seniors.                                       It is open to members and non-members of any age from any geographic area.
