A message from our owners:

We grew up in small-town Kansas and know the importance of local communities. Our lives have been shaped by our neighbors, friends, schools and community. We know that the local community is where friendships are made, life is lived and long term commitments are forged. We are excited that with the opening of the Garfield, this precious lifestyle will continue and flourish with your new friends and neighbors.

We know that people enjoy living where their days are filled with social interactions. When you say “Yes!” to living at the Garfield, your new apartment home will provide a lifestyle unmatched by other communities. We will handle the upkeep, maintenance and all of those other daily chores you hated to do. Now, you will have the freedom to really enjoy living.

We’re excited to be an integral part of the Abilene community and look forward to walking hand-in-hand with the Abilene City Commission and the Historical Society to renovate the historic Garfield Elementary School into this new independent living community. The school house was built in 1942 and was an integral part of the Abilene school system for many years. Now in 2020, the building will come alive with a new purpose as it becomes home for 19 family units for Abilene and the surrounding communities.

A building is just a place to live, but when it is filled with family, it becomes a home. That is how you will feel when you become a resident at The Garfield. We invite you to learn more about this new, locally owned and managed senior living community.

Lastly, we are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you and are eager to meet you and build a new, long-lasting friendship with you through this exciting project,
