Spotlight on Schowalter Villa

Webster dictionary defines the word “seamless” as something perfectly consistent, without noticeable seams. Schowalter Villa is the epitome of just that: a seamless campus with connections to our community.

Hesston is bridging the gap between the young and the old everyday, thanks to the partnership between Hesston College and Schowalter Villa, and the intergenerational facility it plays host to. Schowalter Villa residents are able to attend classes at Hesston College while students are able to volunteer at Schowalter Villa, and learn from the experience and wisdom that the residents have to offer. To bring all of this closer together, the “Journey of Life” walkway connects Schowalter Villa, Dyck Arboretum of the Plains and Hesston College and in the future will feature gazebos, benches, and signs that signify and describe the different stages of life for residents and students to enjoy.

Schowalter Villa is a Christian retirement community in Kansas that features an intergenerational center, which houses the Hesston Community Childcare Center, and blends the generations, all the while encouraging a healthy relationship between children and seniors at Schowalter Villa. Linking the retirement community with the intergenerational center is Schowalter Villa’s “Main Street,” which features an ice cream parlor, a bank, gift shop and more.
