History and Setting
The Lillie Mansion at Lutheran Rehabilitation & Skilled Care Center
Premier Residential Care in the Heart of Worcester
Discover the History
Henry Goulding, a prominent Worcester industrialist had the mansion built in 1850 in the Italianate design style as a retirement gift to himself. In 1920, the mansion opened its doors as the Swedish Lutheran Home for the Aged and there began a tradition of caring for seniors that are nearing 100 years old. Today we are pleased to announce the mansion is now open once again, fully restored and enhanced to provide the Worcester community a setting for residential care like no other.
