Heritage Full of Heart
The WinShape Retreat campus has a long and beautiful history. Our stately French-inspired buildings were initially used to house the student-run dairy enterprise of Berry College. Seventy years into the operation, Berry College decided to move the dairy to its main campus, and the complex was left vacant. Around this same time, Truett and Jeannette Cathy visited the property and felt as though it was the ideal location to grow the ministry of their WinShape Foundation. In fact, upon setting foot on the property, the Cathy's felt they were standing on holy ground. Plans were soon made to transform the empty dairy barns into what is now WinShape Retreat.
