In 1967 Reverend Ralph A. Plautz, Pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Hannibal MO was dismayed at the conditions that existed in nursing homes serving many of the people in his congregation. From his efforts, and a committee from St. John’s, the idea expanded to six other Lutheran congregations in northeast Missouri. Interested persons from these congregations formed a non-profit organization and Luther Manor Association became a reality. In Early 1969 the Luther Manor Association purchased a tract of land from St. John’s Lutheran Church of Hannibal. Board Members were appointed to represent the six congregations. The facility was opened on June 1, 1972.
