Leaman Woods poem
by Millie Shellenberger
There is a Leaman Woods located on the grounds of Landis Homes. Through it, all residents are invited to anytime freely roam. Several paths of asphalt provide adequate access through For pedestrians, walkers, wheelchairs and even scooters, too. Along the paths, are benches, where folks can stop to rest. There, they can relax, mediate, ponder, and think thoughts that are the very best. Read more here….
55th Anniversary Reflections
In 2019, Landis Homes celebrates our 55th Anniversary.
It was on February 18, 1964 when Landis Homes first opened our doors to the first residents.
We are honored that family members of our founders, past team members, former board members and others instrumental to our history are current residents of Landis Homes.
We have invited some of them to share reflections of significant events they experienced at Landis Homes that gave them a special, personal connection. Click here to read their stories.
