About Golden Dawn

The History of Golden Dawn

Golden Dawn Senior Citizen was founded in 1965 by the Bruce Peninsula Pentecostal Assemblies, under the leaderhip of Rev. Sherman Myles and his wife Geneva Myles. They purchased the William’s Hotel in Lion’s Head with the intention of opening a nursing home to provide care to seniors.

The William's Hotel, Lion's Head (right) was purchased and renovated to accommodate the new nursing home. 

The need for services directed to the senior population increased over the years. Golden Dawn responded by expanding the initial services to include independent apartment style living as well as long term care. The new facility opened in 1981 with both long term care and apartments.

In 2002 the William's Hotel structure was demolished to make way for a new administrative wing. This new wing was completed in 2004.
