Golden Rule Nursing Home to open in Danville (1955)

source: Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, November 24, 1955 - page 1, column 2:

According to an article, in November 1955 the Danville town council approved a request for a variance in the zoning ordinance, so that the Golden Rule Nursing Home could be opened at 147 South Wayne Street. The property was at that time owned by James S. Waddell and was formerly the Thad Adams house. Registered nurses Mrs. Martha Mullin of Lebanon and Mrs. June Cash of Lizton would be in charge of establishing the nursing home. It was to be for the elderly and convalescent - no children or mental patients would be admitted. It was licensed to take care of 25 patients.

NOTE: A December 8, 1955 article said it was slated to open by January 1956. Mrs. Vannie Leak of Lizton, mother of Mrs. June Cash, helped purchase the property. Martha Mullin was listed as a graduate of the St. Joseph Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota, with a Bachelor of Science in nursing, and a former nursing school instructor. June Cash was listed as a graduate of General Hospital in Indianapolis.
