The idea for Penick Village was first advanced by Bishop Edwin A. Penick in the late 1950s and found its home in Southern Pines thanks to a generous gift from Mrs. James Boyd, who donated 13.5 acres of land adjacent to the Weymouth Nature Preserve. This gift gave Penick Village the good fortune to be developed in one of the oldest and most quaint sections of Southern Pines – just a few blocks from downtown, only ten minutes from the Village of Pinehurst. Ground was broken for the first building in 1962 and the doors opened to residents on April 15, 1964.
Since that time, Penick Village has grown to 38 acres. Over the years we added Health Services (Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing) and through recent expansions we now have over 150 Independent Living Residences as well as the Village House, a central hub of sorts for dining, meetings, library, chapel, etc.
Penick Village entered our 6th decade of service in 2014 and a lot has changed. But even as Penick continues to evolve and innovatively plan for the future, one thing will never change: our dedication to our residents, recognizing our responsibility to enrich their lives and maintain their health for as long as possible.
