The Pipkin Conference Center is a full-featured conference center/dining facility. It has a covered drive through portico/entrance and wrap -around porches with Adirondack-style rocking chairs and plenty of covered space for outdoor activities.
The kitchen is equipped with a large commercial four-burner electric stove/oven/flattop, large-capacity ice machine, two commercial refrigerators, two large and two medium stainless steel preparation tables, microwave oven, two commercial sinks (a three-compartment and a two-compartment), washer/dryer, separate restroom, and a wire baker's rack (temporary storage). The kitchen foyer is perfect for a serving or staging area for larger functions. The kitchen also has a covered loading/unloading area providing easy access to the storage areas.
Currently, we do not schedule multiple or overlapping events in the center so that each user has sole use of the center for their particular rental.
