Frederick Living (Formally Frederick Mennonite Community)
In 1856, Benjamin Bertolet and other leading citizens of Frederick Township devised a plan to establish the Frederick Institute as a classical day school to prepare men and women for college. A magnificent edifice, the building and school were the pride of Frederick until the Civil War. Without students, the school closed.
In 1896, the school went to auction and the Reverend Nathaniel B. Grubb purchased it and with the last minute approval of the First Mennonite Church of Philadelphia, formed the Frederick Mennonite Home for the Aged.
Today, Frederick Living is a flourishing continuing care
retirement community featuring independent living, assisted living,
Alzheimer's and nursing care. Frederick Living is open to all persons
without regard to race, age, religion, disability, ancestry, national
origin or gender.
