From the June 14, 1962 edition of The Wayne Herald:

Construction Will Begin on Nursing Home Structure

Construction will begin July 1 on new Dahl nursing home structure to be situated on the south half of the present property.

The new nursing home will include a glass-walled recreation room connected to amain entrance and lobby. A nursing station located adjacent to the recreation room will afford effective control and conserve the nurse's time.

Other facilities to be built are a utility room, examination room, drug storage room and administrative officers. Single and double patient rooms with private toilet facilities and closets, main baths and wheel chair showers, dining room, kitchen and storage and a boiler room.

The added patient rooms will provide the nursing home with a 65 bed total.

An upper story will be used for living quarters for the Dahls.

Plans call for construction to be completed in late fall. Simpson Inc., Norfolk, is the contractor, while R. A. Theisen and E. B. Watson, Norfolk, are the architects.
