In 1992, Cathedral Square helped the homeowners of Williston Woods, a community of 112 manufactured homes for people age 55 and older form a housing cooperative. The following year, the cooperative purchased the land and Cathedral Square became the manager. The cooperative is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of residents. New owners buy a share in the cooperative and purchase homes from individual owners at fair market value.
Lots are wooded and surrounded by open land. The activity center includes a large community room, commercial kitchen, a meeting room, library, sunroom and on-site management offices. Residents are encouraged to participate in the committees that organize many recreational and social activities. Williston Woods is a SASH® location, with a full-time SASH coordinator and part-time wellness nurse.
