Wartburg Fall Festival Celebrates Institution’s 150th Anniversary

Wartburg, a senior care provider, recently hosted its annual Fall Festival on their 34-acre campus. This year’s event drew close to 1,000 people and commemorated their 150th anniversary. Founded in 1866, Wartburg’s legacy dates back to the days of caring for children orphaned after the Civil War and caring for seniors since 1897.

The Fall Festival honored Wartburg’s century and a half of caring for the community by honoring the past through walking tours led by two of The Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School alumni, celebrated the present by featuring Wartburg’s continuum of care and looked to the future. Wartburg’s history is highlighted throughout the campus and features a self-guided walking tour that includes signage detailing its many milestones over the past 150 years. Always looking to expand its offerings and improve on its services, Wartburg recently opened a new Outpatient Rehabilitation Center offering innovative rehabilitative therapies to maximize recovery as well as wellness classes such as Tai Chi and Yoga for the community.

The event featured live entertainment throughout the day, a children’s area with a bouncy castle, obstacles course and games (sponsored by The Future Society, Inc., a mentoring organization for underprivileged children founded by a former Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School alumni), shopping, massages, an assortment of food trucks, an art exhibition hosted by Got Art?, Inc. and a Farmer’s Market (sponsored by Morrison Community Living). There was also a Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School reunion, welcoming 30 Wartburg alumni back home. Radio station 107.1 The Peak, broadcasted from the festival. – Wartburg
