Side Entrance

Our History

Over 60 years ago, a group of citizens decided that Parkersburg, West Virginia needed a ladies retirement home. After legally combining three separate bequests into one, land was purchased, architectural design created, and land was broken.

Since then, a non-profit corporation named Wood County Home Corporation (dba Colonial House) has existed at 1517 23rd Street. Today, our Board of Directors is still a citizen-volunteer board. Additionally, men have been welcome here since 2005.
