In 1922, the Welsh Home in Rocky River was opened. The original home was described as having "nine bedrooms, two living rooms and five bathrooms, as well as six cows, calves, a bull and a horse with an orchard and garden." As the years passed, the need for a new home was apparent. In 1953, the original farm house was razed and construction of the present Welsh Home was underway.
This home now stands as a testament to the foresight, perseverance and hard work of the dedicated ladies of the Women's Welsh Clubs of America. It is a legacy of love offered to those who come here to live the fullness of their lives. Today, the Welsh Home represents one of the leading nursing homes in the State of Ohio. Welsh heritage is no longer a requirement for residency, however you will notice items of Welsh heritage displayed throughout our home.
