Everything about our building is unique. In fact, that is our tag line “Unique Senior Living”. Here’s the website link https://www.10wilmingtonplace.com/. I’m not that familiar with many other Kirkbrides, but from what I understand, all are very unique. One of our favorite statements is, our center wing was built in 1855, before Lincoln was President!
As much as we love our building, it’s a real challenge to maintain. We recently had flooding in our finished basement due to very heavy rain. The stacked stone foundation is certainly not water-tight. Also, because the State of Ohio had sand blasted the brick exterior in the 70’s, we have to apply a waterproofing chemical to the brick surface every 7-10 years to keep the brick in good condition. This is a very expensive maintenance item.
We’ve been in operation for nearly 35 years and the support has been tremendous. Everyone in Dayton knows of our building and campus. It’s a Dayton treasure.
