Our country-like setting attracts a variety of ducks, deer and other wildlife, often viewed from our back patio over an evening cup of coffee with friends.

Our community maintains a full calendar of resident-focused life enrichment activities throughout the year, hosted both on and off campus.

Since its founding in 1949, our parent company, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, has grown to become one of the nation’s top 26th largest non-profit senior living organizations serving more than 2,500 residents in 17 Kansas and Missouri communities.


Fort Scott Presbyterian Village has a storied history. The dream of establishing Fort Scott Presbyterian Village began in 1986 when several local citizens took notice of the steady stream of retirement-age friends leaving our community in search of living arrangements elsewhere. A group of concerned individuals approached Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America with the idea of a fundraising campaign. “Time to Secure the Future” was launched with a goal of raising $500,000. Instead, thanks in large measure to the leadership of Connie Banwart, the campaign raised $1.2 million, demonstrating our community’s commitment to the cause and our citizens’ belief in the services we provide. Connie has served on the Presbyterian Village board of directors and assists at Presbyterian Village with other local volunteer programs, as well.

On December 3, 1992, more than 150 area residents braved the cold and winds to participate in the official groundbreaking ceremony. Eighteen months later, on July 8th, 1994, Fort Scott Presbyterian Village held its grand opening and welcomed its first residents.
