The David H. Wilkins Conference Center, which sits near the Daniel Observatory at the top of Roper Mountain, was dedicated in 2003. David H. Wilkins served as Speaker of the South Carolina House of Representatives from December 1994 until June 2005. Mr. Wilkins has provided invaluable support in the development of Roper Mountain Science Center and its programs. Funding for this project, a component of the original master plan for Roper Mountain Science Center, was provided by the South Carolina General Assembly.
The conference center houses facilities for meetings, offices and classrooms for school and public programs in astronomy.
