Retirement home turns 40

April 20, 2004

Americus-- A place many seniors call home turns 40.

Ray Wilder and his wife, Juanita, live at Magnolia Manor.

The Americus retirement center was one of the first of its kind in South Georgia.

The Wilders are celebrating their home's 40th birthday. Juanita Wilder says, "We like it here very much. He is a retired minister and we knew all along, serving churches in South Georgia, that this is where we would wind up at. It's great to be here and have the wonderful care that you get."

Magnolia Manor is a faith-based retirement home, offering full care for seniors, including an Alzheimer's unit.

It was established in the 1960's under the Methodist Ministry.
