About Us

We are an LGBT-focused, ages 55+, forming community in Durham, NC, with 15 acres of wooded land just 20 minutes from downtown Durham. We are gay and straight, single and coupled, working and retired, in Durham and beyond, and we represent a variety of professions, skills, and interests. 

Our Vision is to live in an active, caring community with the infrastructure to age in place, balancing the privacy of a smaller sustainable dwelling with opportunities for social engagement and the support of the larger community. 

Our Values include respect, sustainability, supporting health & aging in place, fiscal responsibility, balancing community & privacy, and beauty of the commons.
