Why the Expansion?
In 1962, Sigma Sigma Sigma leadership said, "...the time has come for the Sorority to have a home of its own. Not just anywhere though there are welcoming Sigmas in ever state, but a home where our roots are deepest, where most of our beloved traditions began, where our hearts turn each Founders Day, to Virigina- where Tri Sigma was born." In the spring of 1965 we opened the doors of the Mabel Lee Walton National Memorial Headquarters in Woodstock, VA. It immediately became Tri Sigma's home and continues to be today.
As we draw nearer on the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Walton House, new plans are underway to expand our Executive Offices and transform Walton House into a true memorial home for our archives and heritage.
We invite you to participate in the Heart Home Campaign. This one-time campaign is designed to offer our members and chapters an opportunity to be involved in this exciting expansion project. Although many changes are happening at Walton House, it will forever remain our “heart home!"
Next door to Walton House will be Tri Sigma's expanded Executive Offices. The two properties will be connected by the Founders Garden, a beautiful walkway honoring our eight founders.
This nearly 7,000 square foot building will function as the central hub of operations for Tri Sigma member services. It will also be home to the Tri Sigma Foundation offices. The property will include:
