About the Vernet Building

The Center, with its unique curved limestone walls and vertical lines of rough-hewn yellow pine was built in 1973, thanks to a gift from the foundation endowed by the estate of Sergius Vernet.  Thanks to recent energy efficiency upgrades, the Center is now heated and cooled by a geothermal heat pump, high efficiency lighting is found throughout, and insulated cork flooring fills the lower level.
