Wartburg is proudly celebrating their 150th anniversary in 2016. Wartburg has been ahead of their time since its inception in 1866, beginning as an orphan farm school in the wake of the Civil War and now serving area seniors through residential and at home healthcare services. Founded on the principal and belief that caring for the whole person is an essential component of a rich and happy life, nurturing body, mind and spirit have remained a key component of Wartburg’s mission as their unique array of programs have grown; expanding their community impact and honoring the lives of seniors during their century and a half of service.
