Personalized care in scenic Avon
Once known as a farming town, the city of Avon has transformed into a vibrant and thriving area where the town’s residents can find everything they need. The Lorain County Metro Parks’ Miller Nature Preserve displays prehistoric ferns to exotic orchids in its new conservatory, and the historic Avon Isle Park Dance Pavilion lets residents kick up their heels for an evening of dancing and memories. This wonderful variety of activities makes Avon a perfect home to our St. Mary of the Woods. Our staff members are proud that our community serves as our residents’ home and a gathering place for family and friends.
