About the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park

Located on 300 magnificent acres, the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park is conveniently located in the friendly town of Franklin, just south of Indianapolis. Since its beginning in 1916, it has been a retirement community serving all Indiana Masonic families.

Whether you are a senior who is completely independent, one that seeks occasional assistance, or one that requires comprehensive health care, the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park campus is able to meet your needs. They offer a variety of living arrangements, and different levels of care depending on your needs.  Make yourself at home in one of their cottages, duplexes, or one of the one or two bedroom apartments.

You no longer need to be concerned about the daily chores of cooking, housekeeping, laundry and yard work.  This 160-bed center provides comprehensive care and offers private and semi-private quarters.  And, the Medical Center provides one of the finest long-term health care facilities in the Midwest. 

There are many activities for Masonic Home residents. On the grounds of the campus are Kresge Chapel and Ransford Chapel where Sunday services are conducted to accommodate many faiths and physical requirements of the residents.

During the week you will have the opportunity to be active in exercise groups, prayer circle, coffee and social hours, crafts, ceramics, cards, concerts, outings and games. You will make many new friends. Day trips and shopping trips are also planned.

Not only will you find a new home and friends here, but you will be surrounded by beautiful campus acres. When entering the campus you will see the distinctive, impressive arch and view lovely manicured flowered gardens and the incredible elevated garden fountain.

Also, on the campus are the Indiana Masonic Library and Museum, the Marvin Isley Bell Tower, a greenhouse, the Indiana Masonic Supplies gift shop, and offices of the Grand Chapter, O.E.S. and Indiana Demolay.

The Indiana Masonic Home is our salvation, whether we want to acknowledge it or not, we will all need care as the years go by. The Home is here for us – we need to be there for the Home!

Thanks to all my new friends at Compass Park I am looking forward to the year. I am so thankful that we made the decision to move here. My new “normal” is wonderful!

I feel really blessed to be here, and I felt that way the first time I walked through the door.
