Located on a portion of Croasdaile Farm, a historical working dairy farm founded by John Sprunt Hill, many of our residents still remember having their milk delivered to their doors from the Croasdaile Dairy.

Though the milk is no longer delivered, the barn and silo still stand renovated to match their heyday. The scene creates a picturesque, rural atmosphere that promotes peace while still only a few minutes from the thrill of downtown Durham.

In keeping with the elegantly rustic charm of Croasdaile Farm, some of our existing farm buildings and barns will eventually be converted into a "village center" complete with restaurants, shops and offices. We will also be preserving nearly 275 acres by the members of the Croasdaile Farm Master Homeowners Association for passive or active recreation areas such as the 6.5 acre lake with fishing pier, numerous greenway paths and a 40 acre park with picnic area, lovely vistas and abundant wildlife.


In 1955, with 13 senior adults moving into the Methodist Retirement Home on Erwin Road in Durham, United Methodist Retirement Homes (UMRH) was created. As a not-for-profit community with a legacy of premier services, amenities, and care, Croasdaile Village has become one of the most popular choices for retirement living in the Triangle and surrounding area.

With over 60 years of service, UMRH has grown to four campuses, about 1050 residents, and over 730 employees with sights set on an expansion to increase their reach to other seniors looking for an excellent future.

Croasdaile Village is proud to be managed by Life Care Services.
