An Ecumenical Boarding House for Independent Seniors

     Located near the center of the Village of Skaneateles, the church owns and operates The Manor as a separately incorporated 501(3)c non-profit residential home for the “well-elderly”. This renovated boarding house provides a private bedroom, private sitting-room and bathroom, shared living spaces, meals and utilities for a very modest monthly rent.
     It is a significant Mission program for the Church. In addition to owning the facility the Session of First Presbyterian Church selects the managing Board of Directors of The Manor. Members of the church have the opportunity to serve and share in the Sunday noon meal with the residents, serve as Board members and contribute to the maintenance and upkeep of the facility.

Our Story

     The Manor was established in 1964 through the generosity of Marian and Don Dixon – and was lovingly and personally renovated and maintained by them and a dedicated group of friends until 1975, when the Dixons donated the facility to the First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles, on the conditions that: 1) The Manor be affordable; 2) The Manor serve the "well elderly"; 3) The Manor be operated by the church for at least ten years.
     Forty years later, the Manor is a vital resource in the community and an important ecumenical mission outreach of the church in the community. Social definitions of what constitutes being "elderly" and "well" may have changed markedly since 1975, but First Presbyterian Church continues to provide The Manor as a very affordable residence for seniors of all denominations in our community.
