The Ernesto J. Salinas Memorial Community Center is the oldest and largest of the nine centers that are run under the direction of Commissioner of Pct. 1 Jesse Gonzalez and the Webb County Commissioners Court. Located in Mirando City, Texas, the center was completed in 1984 on land donated by the Killam family. The main purpose was to provide a gathering place for social and civic events for the four small rural communities of Aguilares, Oilton, Bruni, and Mirando City and was for many years known as the “Quad-City Community Center” The center is available for rentals for meetings, parties, weddings, etc. The original center featured a large main hall, a fully equipped kitchen, and a small clinic area. Over the years a dining room for the elderly program and a library/technology center addition were added to the original building. After the center was refurbished in 2010, it was renamed and dedicated to the memory of long time Precinct 3 Judge Ernesto J. Salinas.
Throughout the years, the center has served as the hub of community life and strives to provide access to the programs and agencies that serve the needs of our residents of all ages, especially the youth and the “young at heart”.
Please feel free to come by the center at any time to see what events and programs are taking place. We are here to assist you in any way possible. Together, we can all accomplish more.
