On this date: Kings Daughters Home opened

September 24, 1919

Kings Daughters Home in Dansville, NY was an assisted living facility for older independent adults for more than 90 years.  Over the years many of school children from Dansville Central School would sing Christmas carols from the staircase while the residents would surround them on the first floor near the tree.  Friends and family would also go trick-or-treating during Halloween.  However in the spring 2011 the King’s Daughters Home would be forced to close due to lack of money to operate sufficiently and was auctioned off on September 19th 2012.  A separate auction for contents will be held on October 8, 2012.

Originally built as Dansville Seminary to provide a higher education for older children, this 3 story brick building was finished in 1860 at a cost of $12,000.  In 1890, the new Owner Dr. George L. Ahlers along with Dr. Frederick R. Driesbach converted it into the Dansville Medical & Surgical Hospital, which would be the first hospital in town.
