The Village Center

Blacksburg's center for the arts and the art of healthy aging.

Warm Hearth Village founder, Wybe Kroontje originally envisioned the Village Center as the heart of the campus plan. Now, that vision is a reality. As the hub of activity, the Village Center unites residents from throughout the campus and enhances both physical and social wellness through three main areas: the welcome center, the fitness center and community gathering spaces.
