The Otterbein Franklin Campus

Nestled in beautiful Franklin, Indiana, our campus is situated on 120 park-like acres that boast mature trees, stocked ponds, sidewalks and walking trails. You’ll also find a fishing pond, tennis court, playground, and clubhouse with an indoor pool on the grounds.  We are minutes away from the rich history and charm of downtown Franklin where the courthouse, Franklin College, vintage shops and eateries abound. Click the map below to enlarge.

We are in close proximity to Greenwood, Indianapolis, and Columbus, which makes shopping trips and cultural excursions ideal. We also offer convenient access to medical specialists and nationally recognized hospitals like Indiana University, St. Vincent, Franciscan Health and Johnson Memorial Health, which is located across the street from our campus.

Welcome to our community.

Otterbein Franklin SeniorLife Community (formally know as Franklin United Methodist Community) opened its doors in 1957 as a continuing care retirement community that provides a variety of living options and care choices for retired persons. The long-standing traditions and standards of the United Methodist Church remain a part of our community; however residency is open to persons of all faiths and denominations. We stand committed as a non-profit, faith-based organization willing to serve the needs of our community.
