Woodhaven Nursing Home is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
According to David Graves, the nursing home’s owner, the facility was founded in 1960 by Dr. John McCown. It’s always been at its current location, just west of Montvale on U. S. 460, although it has expanded substantially since then. The old house, built as a single family home in 1927, still forms its core and currently houses offices. At one point, in the 1950s, a company called Woodhaven Manufacturing operated there.
