The Judson Palmer Home is the creation of a truly unique Findlay couple, Judson and Katherine Palmer. The Judson Palmer Home, created from their estates, has been serving Findlay and Hancock County since 1950.
The trust was established in 1939 after Katherine's death. Just before the beginning of World War II, the first community board of directors was formed to build and operate the home.
The war delayed the start of construction on the building, but by 1950, the facility opened its doors to the first residents.
The facility seeks no funding from the community.
The Palmers are claimed as true visionary people since their generation had no concept of assisted living.
Judson Palmer was involved in the grocery business and a flour mill operation. He also served as president of the Farmers' Bank for a time. He died in 1916.
