Collingswood Nursing Home was deemed unsuitable for human occupancy due to the building’s location on a hillside.
The home had been abandoned for about 10 years and was deemed uninhabitable by local residents.
The city of Collingsworth is now offering to buy the home, which had a history of problems, to a group of Collingwood residents.
They’re hoping to move the facility to an open space with less traffic and more privacy.
The residents of Collinsworth have not yet had an opportunity to take part in the project, but they say the move will help the facility stay up to date and allow them to maintain their community.
The Collings Wood nursing home has been around for about a century, but it has not been in the city for some time, according to the Collingsbrook Daily Times.
Collingswoods owner and board member David Collings said the nursing home is currently being refurbished and is no longer in use.
The home was built in the early 1800s and was one of the first nursing homes in the United States, according the Collingwoods website.
The facility was purchased by the city of Los Angeles in 2014, according its website.
A new home for the Collinswood nursing homes is being built, and the city is offering to purchase the building from the residents of the community.
The plan is to make the new home available to the community for a minimum of 20 years, with the option of extending the deal.
