Excerpt from letter dated March 4, 1962 written to Kathleen and family from Dorothy:

I was lucky on the day Astronaut Glenn took his quick trip around the earth. ….I saw the blast-off and all that the TV showed in the morning. It’s refreshing to see a man of his caliber, personality and humility become the nation’s hero, after all the attention given by the nation’s kids to these screw-ball rock-and-roll singers and twist dancers, and wild west gun-men!! I think that event has increased our prestige around the world. I don’t know what to think of more nuclear tests.

A tradition began in 1726, when Samuel Beard of Milford paid the ―full sum of Nineteen Hundred pounds good Bills of Publick Credit‖ for the land which came to be known as century Farm at Long Hill in Shelton. From that time on, those who have lived on that land have consistently been committed to strong religious values and concern for others in the community.

Seven generations of the Beard family farmed the land and took an active role in the community and local church.

Mary Louise Beard, who sold Century Farm to United Methodist Homes, served as missionary in China before retiring to the family homestead. According to Edith Valentine, a member of the family who signed the deed to The Homes, Century Farm was well known and everyone loved to visit.

At that time in the early 1960’s, the existing Methodist Homes in West Haven and Danbury were not large enough to accommodate the growing need for quality care for older adults. Bishop Lloyd Wicke appointed a commission to plan and raise funds for additional senior facilities in Connecticut and New York.

In December, 1964, The Health Care Agencies of the New York Annual Conference of the Methodist Church paid $5,000 for an option on 39 acres of land from the estate of Mary Louise. The land was purchased the following year for $120,000.

Wicke Health Center was built first, opening in 1968. Two years later, Wesley Heights began operations. Peg Belden Martin, a newspaper reporter who became one of the first residents at Wesley Heights, kept tabs on the project from the outset.

According to Peg, that first summer, residents lived in a ―cloud of dust and no lawns.‖ They watched as the trees were planted and the streets paved.

In addition, not all the Congregate apartments were finished, so several residents stayed in cottages in West Court and were driven back and forth for meals in the dining room.

Residents soon made Wesley Heights their home, enjoying cookouts, parties, progressive dinners and other neighborly events. A residents association was formed and may issues of concern to residents were worked out.

The first newsletter was published in 1971, with Glen Ketchum Maresca as editor and Peg Belden as publisher.

Early activities included a sewing circle, woodcarving, table games and sing-a-longs. Bingo games and the Flower Fund (now the Sunshine Fund) debuted in October of 1972. By September of 1975, the newsletter included a full page of activities for residents.

That same year, the resident newsletter took note of how caring and concerned the staff members were. In describing Lillian Haurilak, today the administrator of Wesley Heights, editor Maresca noted: ―Who has ever approached Lillian’s door, and not found somebody standing in it, with three or four more outside, while Lillian, between typewriter and telephone, finds the means to smile at one and all and even appears to like to smile, no matter how many times she’s interrupted for no reason at all?‖ Throughout these past 25 years, that same attitude of caring has shaped the lives of all who have lived or worked at Wesley Heights. The joy, the smiles, the laughter… the sorrow, the tears and the sadness have been shared and borne by the entire community. Residents and staff come from all over to make a community of caring and love. It is this which we celebrate today, on Wesley Heights’ 25 th anniversary.

***** In a telephone conversation with Edith Beard Valentine on February 22, 2008, Edith told Jana Jackson that she taught kindergarten at a school near Century Farm. She recalled a beautiful staircase within the home. One day she was at school and saw trucks going by and she realized that they were going to the old farm. She had someone watch her class for her and went over to the farm and saw them knocking it down. There had been a problem with vandals at the now vacant house. Later, after the Methodist Mission home was built, she would take her kindergarten class for a walk over to visit the residents.

Methodist retirement community celebrates silver anniversary Shelton- Calling Wesley Heights ―a place where people feel safe and welcome,‖ the Rev. Walter Everett looked back on the retirement community’s origins as he hosted a rededication ceremony there Thursday.

Wesley Heights, run by United Methodist Homes of Connecticut at 580 Long Hill Ave., opened in 1970. It consists of 90 cottages and 92 apartments.

Everett, chairman of the board of directors, led the 25th anniversary celebration, which drew more than 250 friends, residents and supporters.

Twenty-eight years ago ―the land belonged to Mary L. Beard, who had spent many years as a missionary in China before returning to the family homestead,‖ Everett said.

Beard sold the land, known as Century Farm, to United Methodist Homes in 1967. A year later, Everett said, Wicke Health Center, a 120-resident nursing home run by United Methodist Homes, opened. Two years after that, Wesley Heights opened.

Everett also looked ahead to the future of the complex. ―We propose to build 65 apartments for assisted living,‖ he said, stressing that ―it would be residential rather than institutional living.‖ Everett said United Methodist Homes will undertake a major gifts campaign for the project, which is expected to cost $6.9 million. ―With your help we can expand to meet the needs of our growing aging population,‖ he said.

Edith Beard Valentine of Orange, daughter of Bennett N. Beard, Mary Beard’s brother, reminisced about the homestead.

―I’m sure the family would be very pleased‖ with its use, Valentine said with a smile. ―It was a very religious family.‖ She said her father was one of 10 Beard children — five sons and five daughters — who were born and raised on the farm.
