Like all great accomplishments, the Center began with a vision.  In 1968 there wasn’t any such facility in Dover, but as the older population increased, a group of volunteers taking a class on aging saw the need for just such a gathering place.  On March 4th, 1969 the Modern Maturity Center was officially incorporated.
The center had its beginnings in a rented church at 18 Greenhill Avenue.  Less than two years later there was a need for a larger building, and in the fall of 1970 a house was purchased at 2 South Bradford Street.  Beginning with vision, a dedicated Board of Directors and an untiring staff began the task of transforming a small senior Center into what was to become the largest such facility in Delaware.
