The History of South Iredell Senior Center
In 1990, the Council on Aging Board passed a resolution and voted to work towards securing a building to house a multi-purpose senior center in Mooresville.
Because of the sale of the former Lowrance Hospital, funding for health related projects in the Mooresville/South Iredell area became available.
A group of local seniors, often referring to themselves as "the birthing committee," diligently worked to secure funding from the Lowrance Hospital sale to build a senior center.
After many months of work, the Council on Aging and Town of Mooresville were instructed to collaborate on a joint proposal for use of the "hospital funds."
That proposal was accepted by the Lowrance Hospital Committee and in 1995; the South Iredell Senior Center came to life in the Mooresville Citizen Center on 215 North Main Street Mooresville.
After receiving additional funds from the Mack family, the Town expanded the Citizen Center.
The Senior Center was re-located to the ground level of the much expanded facility and now calls the entire lower level home.
The mission of South Iredell Senior Center is to help seniors to continue to grow, promoting physical, emotional and economical well-being for successful aging.
