Plum Landing Retirement Community was the dream of Ida Mighell, a school teacher and principal. Miss Mighell made provisions in her will to build comfortable housing, designed specifically for active retired seniors. The result was a beautiful, six-story building in a park-like setting along the Fox River: Plum Landing.
In 1962, Plum Landing Retirement Community opened its doors as a not-for-profit organization, providing a secure environment in a quiet and peaceful setting for active adults, 55 and better, who want to live independently. We are governed by a local board of directors who are prominent in all areas of local business, many of whom have had family that called Plum Landing home.
Plum Landing Retirement Community is proud of its reputation for being a true community where individualism is encouraged and respected.
