The Winchester-based Trex Company, the leading provider nationally of alternative decking products, will donate its durable and eco-friendly decking for the planned terrace on the west end of The Barns Center in Berryville’s Rose Hill Park. The terrace will invite entry from the Park into the upper level “Great Hall” of the larger barn, which has been designated the James R. Wilkins, Sr. Arts and Education Center.
The Barns Center will offer more than 7,600 square feet of interior flexible-use space and a 519-square-foot terrace; the facility will serve the people of Berryville, Clarke County and the northern Shenandoah Valley region as well as visitors to the area. The 1500-square-foot Great Hall will be an active venue for the visual, literary and performing arts, lectures and workshops, dinners and dances. The Artists Hall (the lower level of Wilkins Center) will provide space for workshops and more intimate events such as poetry readings.
Trex composite products are made of a unique combination of wood and plastic fibers from reclaimed or recycled resources, including sawdust and used pallets from woodworking operations, and recycled plastic grocery bags.
