The oldest African-American owned and operated Nursing Home in the State of Maryland.
In 1920, five ministers feeling the need for a Christian Nursing Home for the aged, purchased the first home – with the support of the churches they served as pastor – at 1620 West Lexington Steer.
In 1952, UBMC President, Rev. Dr. J.T. Boddie, suggested that the original owners of the Home dissolve their own interests and give leadership to the UBMC.
In 1954, the property at 2801 Rayner Avenue in Baltimore city was purchased to house the MBAH. The Home opened at its new location on March 4th.
In January 1970, the Home suffered extensive fire damage. Between 1970 and 1974 extensive renovations were made.
Ground Breaking Ceremony
