Making A Difference For Our Elderly

Masonic Care Community



The Masonic Care Community is the center diamond in a crown of properties owned and managed by the Trustees of the Masonic Hall and Home and the Members of the Masonic Fraternity. The effort to build a home for Masons, their wives, widows and orphans began in the mid 1800’s.


The Masonic Care Community opened its doors in May of 1893 as the Masonic Home. It was built with pride and purpose and over the years, has been a safe haven and welcome place for tens of thousands of people.


Today, this first class facility is open to everyone and more than 500 elders call MCC home. These 400 magnificent acres are close to city services and area attractions, and also offer our residents a safe and secure country setting complete with a pond, stream, woods and a variety of wildlife.
