The Pollock Visitors’ Center started in the late 1980’s in Neller’s Variety Store with Vina LaFave as the curator. Vina was a worker in the Green Thumb program. When the Variety Store building was sold, the center was moved to the former Gordon Atkinson building. After several years in that small building on Main Street, the current building that houses the Pollock Visitor /Interpretive Center opened in October, 2004 after a community vision to preserve history of the area. A grant from the Department of Transportation provided for 80% of the cost of the building. The community joined in the effort to make the Visitor/Interpretive Center a reality by contributing many in-kind volunteer hours towards the matching fund requirement of the grant. This provided a barn-raising atmosphere whereby residents worked together and in one day started with a cement slab at 8:00 a.m. and by 5:00 p.m. had erected the Visitor/Interpretive Center building inclusive of a roof.
