The Kellogg Center, a UNC Asheville property located at 1181 Broyles Road in Hendersonville, N.C., includes two buildings suitable for classes and conferences and 46.3 acres of beautiful land including forest and field trails, complemented by natural and man-made art.
In August 2018, UNC Asheville entered into a use agreement for the Kellogg Center with the YMCA of Western North Carolina, which is hosting a new after-school child care program at the facility. The YMCA also plans to add health and wellness programs for older adults at the site, benefitting from the expertise of the North Carolina Center for Health and Wellness at UNC Asheville. The Kellogg Center was originally the summer residence of Kathryn A. Kellogg, who bequeathed the property to Wake Forest University in 1969. When it didn’t have a university-use for the property, the Kellogg Center was transferred to the UNC System, with N.C. State University and the 4-H Club using it for a time. In 1987, it became property to UNC Asheville, which later developed it in 1995 as an educational and community conference center.
