About

Fond du Lac Senior Center - where friends meet!

The first Senior Center for Fond du Lac senior citizens opened on February 1, 1967 at 86 S. Macy Street in the former Macy’s Furniture Store. It was relocated to the Autumn House at the Retlaw Hotel from 1973-1978. From there it moved to 2nd Street for a few years while seniors rallied to have a larger more adequate facility.

The City decided to use the site at 151 E. 1st Street, following the demolition of the 67 year old Bragg School. The Senior Center opened its doors at the current location on October 27, 1982 with 289 active participants. In 2014, the Friends membership has grown to more than 2600.

A renovation of the Senior Center was completed on October 2002 that added an additional 4,000 square feet to the east side of the building. The addition included 4 activity rooms, storage, a new set of restrooms, renovation of the old section to add 4 offices, a new lobby, new Craft Shoppe and library area, and a new Computer Lab. For all practical purposes, it turned out to look like a whole new building – some 10,000 square feet.

Funding for the 2002 project came from a $252,400 community development block grant and the City’s capital improvement plan. The Friends of the Fond du Lac Senior Center raised money to cover furnishings and the Computer Lab.

Funding through a community development block grant added 15 parking spaces to the front parking lot in the spring of 2007.

The Fond du Lac Senior Center continues to grow each year. Drop in for a visit and you'll see why the Fond du Lac Senior Center is the place where FRIENDS meet!

Proudly serving seniors in our community for over 45 years!
