The History of Central Baptist Village

Our History: Caring for seniors since 1896

Central Baptist Village began as a simple dream of our founder, Reverend Jacob Meier, 125 years ago. He envisioned a place where seniors would have their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs met in a home-like setting. The dream started small in 1896 with only twelve residents living in a remodeled home in Chicago. Evolving many times since our founding, Central Baptist Village is now located on a beautiful 10-acre campus in Norridge, a suburb of Chicago.

Today, our community welcomes persons of all faiths and is home to almost 200 residents. Throughout our history, Central Baptist Village continues to make the dream and vision of Reverend Jacob Meier a reality, generation after generation.
