Homestead Village's rich history helps make it what it is today.
In 1975, St. Paul's' United Church of Christ and St. John's United Church of Christ merged to form Church of the Apostles. The two combined to create a unique campus that would eventually include a new church, social service agencies and a retirement community.
In 1976, a Board of Directors was formed for Homestead Village with plans for a forward-thinking retirement community that offered senior adults an opportunity to continue leading fulfilling, independent, and meaningful lives. The plans were realized in 1983 when the first cottage was completed and the first phase of apartments and the skilled nursing center were opened in 1986.
Today, Homestead Village stands as proof that through dreams and dedication, an idea can be translated into reality.
When the two churches merged to form Church of the Apostles, the beautiful stained glass window from the St. Paul's Church could not be used. The window was stored away, with plans that someday it could be installed at Homestead Village. In 1995, the window was restored and has found a new home in the chapel of our retirement community. The window serves as a lovely reminder of the past.
