One- and Two-Bedroom Apartments
The most iconic building on the Soldiers Home grounds – “Old Main,” Building 2 – was a domiciliary for patient living and care. Now, it has been returned to its original purpose – the service of Veterans, and offers one- and two-bedroom apartment units. The building also houses community amenities including flexible lounge areas for gathering, a club room with billiards, a business center, a workforce skills training center, two fitness areas, and offices for on-site building management, security, and care coordination services.
All one- and two-bedroom apartments are imbued with rehabilitated historic features, and include kitchens with varying appliance packages.
The Administration Building, Building 1, offers single room occupancy units. Adjacent areas, including the historic post office, have been renovated into a shared kitchen, dining, community, and living rooms.
Single room occupancy, commonly abbreviated as SRO, is a form of housing consisting of one private bedroom and closet space, with shared amenities available for all to use.
Three homes on the grounds that formerly housed Soldiers Home staff and their families have been restored for use as private duplexes. Each duplex offers two-story, three-bedroom units on each side.
A Single-Family Home
The former Catholic Chaplain’s Quarters has been rehabilitated as a private, single-family home offering four bedrooms.
