On Tuesday, Feb. 18, Barnesville Manor (485 North St., Barnesville) had an appreciation luncheon for the residents, vendors and staff to celebrate the completion of a $4 million renovation project at the manor apartments. Also attending will be representatives from the corporate headquarters of National Church Residences in Columbus, which purchased the community in 1999.

Barnesville Manor has 51 units of affordable senior housing for residents ages 62 and older.

The extensive work, which began in the fall of 2018, included the main entry lobby with building services and apartment amenities upgraded and tailored to its residents to promote a vibrant community. Also part of the project was a new transportation office, a dedicated health clinic, fitness center, community garden, and business center.

National Church Residences serves more than 42,000 seniors through its array of housing and health care services. The not-for-profit organization is driven by a vision of advancing better living for all seniors, enabling them to remain home for life. With 340 communities in 27 states and Puerto Rico, it is the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of affordable senior housing and the largest employer of service coordinators.

It also offers residential senior communities, home and community-based services, and permanent supportive housing for the formerly homeless and disabled.
