Woody Hair Community Center
Cherokee Nation

The Cherokee Nation Woody Hair Community Center is named in honor of the late Woody Hair, a fluent Cherokee speaker from the Kenwood community. The new center is a result of months’ worth of input from Cherokee citizens throughout the community who wanted a modern facility for community gatherings.

Wallace Design Collective provided structural and civil engineering services for a new community center complex. The 33,000 square foot center offers space for community events, an elder nutrition program, wellness activities, a new Head Start facility and school sporting events. This multipurpose community facility features a 1,300 square foot wellness space and locker rooms that can double as safe areas during severe weather. The complex includes an 11,000 square foot multipurpose gymnasium for high school sports and community basketball tournaments, which can seat over 400 people for banquet-style events. The new facility has two Head Start classrooms totaling more than 2,800 square feet, accommodating up to 40 students. The Head Start area has an outdoor and covered play area, storm-safe areas, a commercial kitchen and offices for staff.
