The C.W. Mount Community Center opened in 2001 with the hopes to uphold Cleon Wade Mount’s wishes for a community building that supports children and adults in multiple capacities. Today, we serve primarily as a banquet and meeting space for all types of community events including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement, public programs, and any celebration in between. The Mount Center also houses Anytime Fitness and the Boys & Girls Club of Tipton County.
This C.W. Mount Center is self-supporting not-for-profit corporation that is governed by a Board of Directors: The Friends of the Community Center of Tipton County, Inc.
“The securing of a site and the erection of a building thereon as and for a Community Building for the County and the City of Tipton. Said building shall be erected not more than two blocks from the Courthouse square and shall provide a place for public meetings, teen age canteens, likewise for adults, and such other uses as are normal for Community Buildings. If either the County or City declines this bequest, the same shall go to the one not declining, if both decline, then said proceeds shall become a permanent endowment fund to the said Farmers Loan & Trust Company, Trustee, to be kept invested in safe interest bearing securities, the income therefrom, after paying costs of trusteeship to be expended in assisting worthy students from the City of Tipton and Prairie Township in securing a college education or business school training.”
