Muldoon Gardens is home to adults 55 and older. It is located in Waverly, New York, just a short walk or drive from the downtown Waverly-Barton area. The community offers 29 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom apartment homes with modern conveniences and historic charm.
The monthly rent includes individually controlled heat as well as hot water. This is made possible by financing and assistance from federal, state and local government programs, which allows us to provide beautiful and affordable homes to those who qualify.
For the convenience of our residents, the community center, computer lab, library, mailroom and trash rooms are all available inside the building. Residents are welcome to reserve the community room at no charge to host an event of their own. They can also plant, maintain and harvest a garden on site.
The community is situated between Chemung and Broad Streets, providing residents with a quiet setting in proximity to a bustling village. The nearby park is home to a farmers’ market, concert series, seasonal festivals, gardening classes and many other exciting events.
Available Supportive Services
We offer supportive services and strive to build relationships with local partners that enhance our residents’ quality of life. Each apartment has an emergency pull cord system in the bedroom and bathroom.
A Historic Building
Muldoon Gardens, originally Waverly Junior and Senior High School (also known as Mary W. Muldoon High School), was constructed in 1913 and named after former Waverly teacher and administrator Mary Muldoon.
Muldoon served more than 50 years in the Waverly school system and is remembered as a groundbreaking educator and advocate for teachers and students who also broadened school studies to include industrial and domestic sciences. The school is listed on a special National Parks Service Registry, “Places Where Women Made History.” After 25 years of sitting vacant and falling into despair, the historic building was preserved and adapted into senior housing. Today, Muldoon Gardens is home to many Muldoon School alumni.
