Peoples Retirement Community opened its doors in 1988. The idea of Pastor Owen Shackett (of Peoples Church) and his wife Betty saw a need for retirement living in this community. Originally designed for independent living, the need for an assisted living quickly became apparent and began slowly admitting residents requiring assistance. A few years later resulted in the first floor, the east wing being remodeled to accommodate memory care.
