On May 14, 1966, Mayor Helen Boosalis ceremonially began construction on a 64-apartment at Eastmont Manor called The Springfield, completed in 1967. The Sycamore and The Saratoga followed in the early 70’s precipitating a name change – Eastmont Towers. The Seasons, an Assisted Living facility, officially opened on September 17, 2001. In June of 2003 The Monarch opened, specializing in end of life Hospice care and seeing the facility name change to Eastmont Towers Community.
