The National Willa Cather Center

The National Willa Cather Center

Completed in 2017, the National Willa Cather Center is a sight to behold. In addition to being the headquarters of the Willa Cather Foundation, the building features a climate-controlled archive, a bookstore, a museum, and conference rooms. The NWCC is a testament to the Willa Cather Foundation’s dedication and a shining example of the organization's mission statement:  to promote and encourage increased understanding and appreciation of the life, times, settings, and work of Willa Cather. The fully restored building also features 3 apartments and 3 retail bays. 

The new National Willa Cather Center gives visitors ample opportunities to delve into Cather's life and work through exploration of an educational exhibit, American Bittersweet: The Life and Writing of Willa Cather. Guests may also visit the archive and study center to discover the Foundation's vast collection of documents and artifacts.
