CANTON – There are plenty of great memories for Tiana Walker at the former Northeast Community Center.

She grew up on Root Avenue NE, a few blocks west. During the 1980s and 1990s, the building was a community hub for children. They used the pool, danced and played in the gymnasium.

“I made a lot of friendships here,” Walker said.

Hassan Anderson bought the property in 2019 and is working to revive the center. It’s now known as Northeast Wellness & Business Center, or NWBC.
