Conference & Retreat Center

Comfort, Charm and Affordability

At The Walker Center for Ecumenical Exchange, we believe that discussions around sensitive topics of social justice are best held in a setting that is warm and inviting—a place where our guests feel comfortable, welcome, and at home. While our mission and purpose evolved over the years, the simple yet profoundly heart-felt concept of hospitality is the legacy left us by Eliza Walker, and it is why so many of our guests return year after year.
