In 1955 Mrs. Thelma Braley purchased the rest home which she now operates as the King Rest Home at 215 West Walker in Marceline. At that time the home supported six guests and was largely lacking in the modern facilities now required for the procurement of a State license.
In the past eight years Mrs. Braley has expanded and modernized her facility adding modern service facilities and an approved fire alarm system. Now fully licensed, the home presently cares for 14 guests and additional expansion is in the planning stage.
Mrs. Braley takes pride in the personal interest and attention accorded to each of her guests.
