1979, Mayor Harold 'Pete' Klosterman began seeking federal funds to
construct senior citizen housing in the city. Originally, the city chose
a site on River Road for the development. Government officials, however,
rejected the site because it was too far away from the Ludlow business
district. By October 1979, a site on Hay Street near the intersection
with Locust was selected. In order to build, three homes and two vacant
lots were acquired.
