Pinecrest Community 125th Anniversary Celebration

Great visions often have humble beginnings. So was the case for the Brethren Home in Mt. Morris, IL. As early as 1878 a simple thought to provide care for widows and orphans emerged among Church of the Brethren members in the Northern Illinois and Wisconsin District. By 1893 a simple two-story structure featuring 19 rooms had been built on 13 acres of Mt Morris’s south side.

Today, 125 years later, that simple vision has transformed into Pinecrest Community, a dynamic and vigorous residence for 175 seniors. Now situated on 40 acres and featuring independent living, intermediate and skilled nursing care, short-term rehab, a specialized memory care facility, and flexible community center, Pinecrest is a 5-star community recognized for its quality care and vibrant senior living.

Pinecrest's legacy is service, compassion, faith, and caring. The past is rich. The Pinecrest future is even more promising.

Pinecrest is planning a 125th anniversary celebration for Saturday, August 11.

Events will include complimentary lunch under the tent, family oriented activities, music, facility tours, ice cream and more. All are invited to attend. Please plan to attend on August 11.
