Franklinton Center at Bricks

281 Bricks Lane, Whitakers, NC 27891

Why do we gather?

This is a time to laugh together;

A time to give each other that nod of remembrance;

A time to have fun (jump on a bounce house or play ball);

A time to eat…

And a time to share the fruits of our labor… by donating to the Mission!

As a 501C3 Franklinton Center at Bricks is transforming the world through nature, history, food, hospitality, and education!  Come and Experience…  A power-filled place where Social Justice reaches beyond the 244 acres. 

On Franklinton Center Day, we invite you to: Come Have Fun! Dance! Play! Enjoy Family, Friends and Laughter!  Hear the history! Share the story! Help build a lasting & transformative legacy!  Eat Delicious Food, Hear Wonderful Music, Vendors, Arts & Crafts, Farmers Market!

And as our elders wrote in their 2010 invitation, “we hope that each person who attends will be blessed by being present and will therefore, become a blessing to others.”

We remain committed to the work of our ancestors and the organizations and initiatives they created.  Contributions can be made on by clicking on the GIVE tab!
