WHITEFIELD (AP) — Ground has officially been broken on what will become the North Country's only senior living community when it's completed.
The Caledonian Record reports that more than 100 local and state officials attended the groundbreaking celebration Monday at The Morrison's nearly $26 million Whitefield Senior Living Community.
The complex will include 33 independent living apartments, 24 assisted living apartments, 24-hour nursing care and indoor and outdoor community areas. The development is expected to employ 33 full-time permanent employees.
Much of the funding for the 83-unit complex came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program, which is providing two low-interest loans totaling almost $25 million.
The complex is expected to open in late 2017 or early 2018.
