The David and Grace Harman Family Home was the boyhood home of Pete Harman, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which he donated to the City for use as a senior recreation center. The house was originally built in 1918 and remodeled in 1989 before Harman turned it over to the City.
Our mission is to enable older adults 60 years or older, to access community resources and participate in Senior Center Programs that enhance dignity, support independence, encourage community involvement and stimulate their physical, mental and emotional well being.

Over the years that I have worked at this center, I count myself blessed to be able to be employed here. Our patrons are a big plus in my life. They show me what is good about life. They allow me to share every talent I have. Our patrons are eager to learn. I want to thank all of those to whom I am blessed to rub elbows with at the Harman Senior Recreation Center.
