In 1897, the United Order of Tents, Southern District No. 1 established a sixteen 16 bed home for adults. It was named Rest Haven Home for Adults. The home was operated with a hands on approach by our management and Tent Sisters. The home was primarily set up for our members as a haven for our sisters without family members to care for them when they reached their golden age; however, the number of sisters that needed this service were so few that the home was opened to men and women not of the order. The home operated for one hundred and five years, being subsidized by annual contributions given by the Tent Sisters and carried no debt at its closure February 22, 2002.
