• Gates County Community Center

    The Gates County Community Center was built in 1978 by a joint effort between the Gates County Board of Education and Gates County Board of Commissioners.  Since that time many changes have taken place.  A little over 3/4 of a million dollars renovations were completed in 2009 - funded by the Golden Leaf Foundation.  A grant received from the Roanoke-Chowan Foundation allowed the Center to establish a Wellness Center.
