Masonic Village

Since 1910, the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown, a not-for-profit continuing care retirement community, children’s home and community service organization, has offered its residents a lifestyle that fits their individual needs, and security in the knowledge that health care services are available if needed, amidst the finest accommodations.

Located on 1,400 acres of picturesque Lancaster County farmland, the Masonic Village has grown steadily over the years to provide for the daily needs of our Masonic Village family, while maintaining the vision of the Masons who began our Mission of Love. From the original 25 residents, our population has grown to more than 1,400, with a staff of more than 1,300 providing care and services to our residents, as well as others, in our community.

The Masonic Village offers skilled nursing services for up to 453 residents, with subacute services, clinical and physician services and specialized care for individuals with dementia. The community also offers assisted living services for 127 residents, residential living accommodations for 260 residents and 334 retirement living apartments and 116 retirement living cottages. Throughout 2004 and 2005, 102 additional cottages will be constructed.

The Masonic Children’s Home provides friendship, care and guidance to 40 school-aged children who attend schools in the Elizabethtown Area School District. A Masonic affiliation is not required for admission to the Masonic Children’s Home; however, a Masonic Lodge sponsors each child.
