In 1954, construction began in Harrisonburg, VA, and by 1955 the first 20 residents arrived from Danville to the newly named Sunnyside Presbyterian Home. Two years later, the community opened its doors to men and welcomed its first male resident.
By 1965, the Sunnyside campus grew to a 55-acre setting with plans for 40 cottages, followed by a chapel, health care center, and apartments. In 1993, King’s Grant – the second Sunnyside community –opened in Martinsville, VA, followed by Summit Square in 1998 as Sunnyside’s third community in Waynesboro, VA.
Today, Sunnyside Communities boasts three award-winning continuing care retirement communities in Virginia.
