The Center of Western Civilization lies at one end of Alley 4, above the kitchen. It has two large doubles (Rooms 211 and 212) and one large single (Room 210) that are often picked by excomm members, hence the name. Currently, the arch at the entrance to this area is marked, “Cultural Centre of Western Civilisation.”
