Ada Mae Ivester Education Center

All of our on-site educational programs and Family Days are made possible by the Ada Mae Ivester Education Center. In 2009 Doug and Kay Ivester dedicated the Education Center to Doug's mother, Mrs. Ada Mae Ivester. Since then, the Education Center has served thousands of students, teachers, families, and patrons through its Living History programs, free Family Days, Forums, and community events. This has been a fitting tribute to the Ivester family as they have provided educational resources to their home, Hall County, for years. We are so proud of the success of the Ada Mae Ivester Education Center and look forward to its bright future.
