Vilas History

Vilas History

The Vilas Home was built in 1888 and was originally built to care for aging widows. Since then, the home has expanded in many ways, now existing with 42 beds and a proud recognition in the National Register of Historic Places.

For over 130 years, the Vilas Home has made it their mission to provide a beautiful home and premier care to residents of the North Country. The three-story building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, has its original high-ceiling rooms, large, windows, recessed porches, and is considered a prime example of Queen Anne architecture.

The Vilas Home is one of the finest establishments to live in, all the staff are so pleasant and great to be around.
