About Us

About UsCornwall Manor Buckingham Campus

Welcome to Cornwall Manor! We have been providing quality housing and health care for older adults for 75 years. And while much has happened in the years since we opened our doors as “The Methodist Church Home at Cornwall” in 1949, one thing has not changed – our commitment to compassion, excellence, and service. Cornwall Manor has been named “Best Retirement Community” for the thirteenth consecutive year by the Lebanon Daily News, and our personal care facility has received numerous deficiency-free inspections. Our Health Center also has received several deficiency-free inspections and provides quality, resident-focused care in an environment that matches our tradition of excellence.

Our History

Our tradition of providing the best in Lebanon County retirement living began when a group of United Methodist clergy and laypersons purchased the 85-acre property in 1949. The beautiful estate on which Cornwall Manor sits dates to the 18th century. The Buckingham Mansion, which was the home for generations of the Coleman family, now contains seven residential apartments. The Cornwall Iron Furnace, which is a national historic landmark district, is located just across the street from Cornwall Manor.


Celebrating Excellence! 75 Years of Caring and Compassion

2024 marks our 75th Anniversary of providing diversified and high-quality housing, healthcare, and related services! We are proud to be a leader in the senior living industry and look forward to celebrating this milestone.
