Located 20 miles south of Boston, you will find Brockton, Massachusetts. From the mid-1750s through the 1920s, Brockton was a center for shoe manufacturing. This is not where the history of Brockton ends; it was also the birthplace of the electric powered street railway in 1884 and turned on by Thomas Edison himself.
Douglas House offers one and two bedroom apartments for seniors and is conveniently located minutes away from downtown Brockton, where you will find local shopping, restaurants, and churches.
On a sunny day, you may find the residents of Douglas House lounging on the gazebo, or on one of the many benches on the property, or you may find them enjoying the attractively landscaped grounds from the spacious solarium. If they are not at home, they may be enjoying one of the cultural events in the neighborhood, including the Brockton Symphony Orchestra, located within a mile of Douglas House and accessible by public transportation.
With its local history and hometown feel, Douglas House offers affordable senior housing with all the amenities of the city, but all the comforts of the suburbs.
Museums, shopping and restaurants are all close by, but with the beautifully landscaped grounds, you may never want to leave!
