The Scott-Farrar Home has roots in the Peterborough community that go back to the incorporation of the Peterborough Home for the Aged in 1909. One of the incorporators was Helen Farrar. The home was located in a small house until the 1920’s when descendents of Helen Farrar relocated it to a large Victorian home on Elm Street. A major benefactor of the home was Jennie Scott who lived her entire life in Peterborough. When Jennie died in 1954, she bequeathed half of her estate to the Peterborough Home for the Aged. In 1957 the new non-profit charitable organization was incorporated as the Scott-Farrar Home.
Building upon its lengthy heritage of providing care to seniors, Scott-Farrar at Peterborough has been created to meet the evolving expectations of today’s seniors. Scott-Farrar is extending its mission by offering new retirement lifestyle choices that promote enriched living and learning and lifelong wellness.
