Sarcoxie Senior Center located on the northwest corner of the Historical Sarcoxie Square officially opened in May 1994. It became a reality after several dedicated community citizens banded together and went door to door to raise money to start the Center, held several fundraisers, and sold name bricks to be displayed on the entry wall where they still remain on display today. The Senior Center is also available as an event venue for the public.
