Help Support the History & the Stories

The Wren's Nest has been a landmark in the West End for the past 100 years. We have seen a lot of change.

In 2017 the board ratified a new strategic plan. It is our goal to increase educational programming and community events over the next five years. We cannot do this alone. It takes support from the community, and the invaluable partnership with local organizations to make this possible.

Today's staff and board of directors plans to keep The Wren's Nest relevant by adapting to and supporting our community and their needs, whether its 1918, 2018, or 3018.
