Our Story

Originally owned by the Tennessee Methodist Conference and opened as a community for Methodist ministers, church leadership and all their families, McKendree Village, named after William McKendree, an American Methodist Bishop, started as an Assisted Living facility in 1963, that eventually grew into a continuing care retirement community to sever both church members and the community. McKendree’s heritage is honored with regular worship services in our beautiful on-site Chapel,  hymn sings, and Bible studies for our residents.
