– OUR HISTORY –

Established in 1964, building a Legacy ever since…

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 nestled into the most historic and quaint section 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 span 38 acres and has become a premier Life Plan community. We have incorporated Health Services (Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, Memory Care, and Rehabilitation), and through recent expansions, we now have over 150 Independent Living residences as well as the Village House, our central hub of amenity space featuring a Restaurant, Pub, Café, Library, Chapel, Grand Hall, Movie Theater, Hair & Nail Salon, and more. With an eye on the future (and approval from our Board) plans are underway for another expansion that will add amenity space, enhance health care areas, and provide 84 more Independent Living residences.

Penick Village’s legacy began in 1964 and continues to evolve through innovation and the dedication of our staff, residents, family, and friends. However, one thing will never change: our commitment of excellence to our residents, recognizing our responsibility to enrich their lives and partner with them to maintain their independence and health at each individual’s highest level.
