Legacy Living in Jamestown, ND

The preservation of this landmark Art Deco building was completed in June 2013 after two years of construction. The project transformed the former Jamestown Hospital into Lutheran Social Services Legacy Center, which is home to 51 apartments serving adults age 55+.

Twenty of the units in this project offer rent subsidy to lower income tenants (earning no more than 50% of area median income, and who are at least 62 years of age). The project is designed to ensure that these tenants will not pay any more than 30% of their income for housing. The balance of the units in the building are available to anyone over age 55, without income limitations.

With more than 20 different floor plans, there is sure to be a floor plan that fits everyone’s needs. All of the apartments are designed according to the principles of universal design, intended to be adaptable to meet the changing needs of both residents and their guests. The apartment layouts incorporate the existing window pattern that was original to the building, which brings a lot of natural light into every room.

In addition to the residences, Legacy Center is a hub of community activity. The Wellness Center, operated by Jamestown Regional Medical Center offers a beautiful, fully staffed health club on site. James River Senior Center operates its social and nutritional services from the building, bringing daily activities to the community and Legacy residents! Café Charlotte anchors the southwest corner of the building, offering homemade soups and sandwiches, along with gourmet coffee. In addition, Bright Beginnings child care center operates out of the building, serving children ages infant to school age in a licensed center.
