Spring Open House set for Friday, April 8
St. Mary’s Senior Living, formerly known as Owens Hall, includes 33 one-bedroom apartments and 31 two-bedroom apartments, the rates for all of which are based on restricted income. In addition, 20 percent of the units provide housing opportunities for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, a need which has been identified in the Terre Haute area.
In 2015, the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, partnered with Flaherty & Collins Properties of Indianapolis to begin applying for tax credits through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) to help finance the project. In 2018, the project received almost $2 million in tax credits for the repurposing of Owens Hall. Construction began in 2019.
Built in 1959, Owens Hall was initially used as housing for new members of the Congregation. Years later, it was repurposed as a residence hall for sisters and later included administrative offices.
