Setting EastView’s Cornerstone

The seed for EastView began with a son’s quest similar to that of many other sons – to find an exceptional retirement community for his parents.

Finding no suitable retirement community in the area, he began to think that Middlebury might be the perfect location given the remarkable college-town setting, the beauty and charm of the landscape, and the diverse cultural offerings in the region. He shared his concept with others, more people became involved, and a plan blossomed – a nonprofit senior living with community-mindfulness as its cornerstone. The plan moved forward and momentum grew. With the generous support of Middlebury College and Porter Medical Center, EastView became a reality on its spectacular 40-acre site.
