Outdoor Spaces

The 244 acres of Franklinton Center at Bricks are perfect for walking or hiking around the tree-laden grounds, holding outdoor sessions, or for meditation and prayer. The landscape includes breathtaking views, trails, an outdoor stage, large fire-pit, remembrance platform near magnolia tree, a creek, picnic areas, and a short drive away an antebellum slave cemetery.

Picnic tables around the campus have been used for impromptu discussions, breakout sessions, weddings and reunions.
