Donate to help renovate the Historic Civic Center Building - - built in 1950 by African-Americans in Spring Lake, North Carolina - - and support efforts to restore this important landmark to its rightful place in the Sandhills community. 

Your donation will help to fund a critical roof replacement for this historic building. Sandhills Family Heritage Association, a community-based 501(c)3 organization and owners of the building, will use the funds to replace the heavily damaged roof and perform other stabilizing work to protect the building from further damage until the full renovation can begin.

With your help, we can save this historic structure, renovate it and restore it to the community!

The Historic Spring Lake Civic Center Building
In 1950, African-American residents of Spring Lake and Manchester bought land and
constructed the Spring Lake Civic Center building for use as a social and recreation
center. During the Civil Rights era, the building was used as a hub for NAACP
meetings, voter registration, desegregation efforts and community-building in
Cumberland and surrounding counties. Community celebrations such as weddings,
dances, family reunions, birthday parties, and fundraising events were held at this site.

The building was gifted to Sandhills Family Heritage Association in 2002 by the last
remaining Trustee of the Spring Lake Civic Association. As stewards of this important
historic and cultural gift, SFHA is working with the community to preserve and restore
the building and to secure national historic designation for the property. The fully
restored building will house historic and cultural collections that tell the stories of
African-Americans in the Sandhills of North Carolina. Sandhills Family Heritage
Association will occupy the new Sandhills Heritage Center and continue its work in the
community. Please visit our website to learn more...  http://sfha-nc.org/
