DFAR12: Legacy Place 

03-23-2015 16:54

This project was borne from the desire of a group of Jehovah's Witnesses to create a senior living community based on the example of the Jehovah's witness homes in Great Britain. Thus began the process of designing the first Jehovah's Witness senior living homes in the United States: a pair of small houses on a 2.4-acre site located in a residential neighborhood in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
