Our History

Our history begins in the late 19th century, with the founding of philanthropic organizations including Lynn Home for Aged Women, Lynn Home for Aged Men, and Lynn Home for Aged Couples. Seeking to better serve their communities, Lynn Home for Elderly Persons was later created by the wise merger of those three establishments. The merger brought better funding, which improved care and allowed expansion for more residents throughout the early 20th century. Soon the Executive Board for the Lynn Home For Aged Women found an ideal opportunity that would shape the Home for decades to come. The combination of funding allowed the purchase of the existing land which was part of the Hollis Estate property at the picturesque corner of Ocean Street and Atlantic Terrace in Lynn, Massachusetts on June 9, 1966.

The current stately, multiple level brick dwelling was erected and upon the completion of the building, the doors opened in 1969. The facility has been exceptionally maintained and proudly administered throughout the years.
