What is "Whit's End"?

In episode #77, "The Nemesis, Part 1", Whit read the goals his late wife Jenny established for Whit's End (as originally revealed in episode #19, "Recollections"). "Whit's End is designed to be a place of discovery and adventure, filled with books and activities, fun and games, arts and crafts, and uplifting conversation. But most of all, it is a place where kids of all ages can just be kids." At the present, there are three Whit's Ends; one is in Odyssey, another at Focus on the Family's headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and a third in Connelsville. (The one in Colorado Springs being the only one of the three that is not fictional.)

Although the front area of the Odyssey Whit's End is devoted to the ice cream counter and seating, the large, multi-story building, which is styled as a Victorian house, contains a number of other important rooms. These include:

* Whit's office
* Computer room
* Library which is near the Soda Shop
* Bible Room
* Little Theater
* Basement, with Underground Railroad secret tunnel
* Whit's workshop
* Secret room #1 (location of the skeletal remains of Spencer Barfield)
* Secret room #2 (location of the first clue to the final treasure of Anrey Le Monde)
* the Kitchen
* Soda Shop
* the Atrium
* the Room of Consequences
* KYDS Kids Radio studio
* the model train room
* Inventors' Corner

History of "Whit's End"

The history of the building Whit's End now occupies has been explored in numerous "AIO" episodes, and plays a significant role in several episodes, as well.
