A History Inspired by Faith

Heritage Pointe Communities is owned and operated by The United Methodist Memorial Home, an Indiana not-for-profit Corporation affiliated with The Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Heritage Pointe of Warren was founded as the Methodist Memorial Home for the Aged by William and Ruth Chopson in 1907. The Chopsons proposed to the Methodist North Indiana Conference that they would donate $25,000 to the establishment of a home for seniors if the Conference could match the gift. The Conference enlisted Rev. M.A. Harlan to raise the money. Upon the success of the fundraising effort, the citizens of Warren bought the original 58 acres of land for the Home. William Chopson then made a second offer. He would donate 300 additional acres and $12,500 in bonds on condition that the new building would be completed by April 1910. That condition was met, and the Home was officially dedicated on April 7, 1910.

Over the next 15 years, additions were made that expanded the capacity of the Home from 37 rooms to 104. The Home’s farms produced meat, dairy, and produce for the residents’ meals. By 1937, over 400 residents lived at the Home. The iconic Applegate Chapel with its soaring steeple was added in 1951. As the decades passed, more additions and improvements were made. 1989 saw the opening of the independent living Woodridge Towne Homes, and Dogwood Glen Villas were completed in 2003. The Pool and Fitness Center was added in 2000, and the Dogwood Glen Golf Course opened in 2005. Heritage Pointe of Huntington opened in 2001 as the second community in the portfolio, and our Fort Wayne location debuted in 2015. What unites all our communities is a longstanding legacy of inspiration from our Christian faith, a dedication to the notion of creating joy, and a steadfast commitment to continuing care.
