- Originally the Young Men's Institute, established back in 1893, the YMI building has now become the YMI Cultural Center. The center's main focus is on three program areas: the Cultural Arts, Economic Development and Community Education. Some of their biggest events include the Goombay Festival, a Kwanzaa Celebration and a Soul Food Dinner Theater. Hoping to build a stronger community with its emphasis on the cultural heritage of the area and through artistic expression, the center offers many exhibits for viewing.
