The Historic Chandler Center in San Antonio, TX
Morningside Ministries at Chandler Estate is home to the Chandler Center, an active adult community center. The Chandler Center in the historic Monte Vista area is open to anyone in the community who is 55 years of age or older. Participants and senior living residents enjoy recreational and social opportunities including educational presentations, cultural enrichment classes, workshops and lectures. Lunches are served daily to residents and members in a spacious dining room.
The Chandler Center is open to the community for intimate gatherings such as wedding and bridal showers, tea parties, retirement celebrations, educational workshops – or simply a quiet place to read or play bridge.
The Senior Center is housed in the original Victorian home of Mr. & Mrs. E. B. Chandler built in 1887. According to the book, San Antonio’s Monte Vista, the Chandler House “can truthfully be called one of the show places of Texas.” One of the unique features is the detailed wood carvings found throughout the entire mansion, hand-made by Mrs. Chandler herself.
As visitors enter the center, the deep-hued wood-paneled walls and beautiful parquet flooring stand out. On the left, the Stanley Banks Parlor is an intimate sitting room framed with beautiful stained-glass windows. To the right, the screened-in Palm Room is an open and airy room for reading or table games. Numerous upstairs rooms are suitable for meetings and events. The large wrap-around porch is ideal for viewing those beautiful San Antonio days.
