A rewarding, fulfilling lifestyle
For those able to live independently or who need a little assistance to remain independent, Frostburg Heights offers rental-subsidized apartments as well as a congregate-housing program. Frostburg Heights offers an engaging environment designed to help you make the most of life.
An unparalleled location
Frostburg Heights sits amid western Maryland’s rolling mountains, overlooking the charming town that serves as home to Frostburg State University. Conveniently located near Interstate-68 and Rts. 220 and 36, Frostburg Heights provides convenient access to West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Locations such as Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., are within only a two-hour drive.
At the same time, nearby cultural and educational opportunities abound, with both Frostburg State University and Allegany College, located in Cumberland, Md., offering diversified programs for all to enjoy. The region also boasts the Frostburg Theater Cultural Center, fine dining, and hotel accommodations.
Local recreational offerings include Rocky Gap State Park, East Cumberland; Deep Creek Lake Four Seasons Resort, Garrett County; and Youghiogheny River white-water rafting, to name just a few.
A site steeped in history
Allegany County also has historical significance. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park is located in Cumberland, the site of the westernmost portion of the canal.
Frostburg also hosts a portion of the National Road, approved by Congress in the early 1800s. Over time, the National Road took a back seat to the railroad and, today, Frostburg is known for its historic rail station. Many architecturally significant homes can be viewed in Frostburg as well.
More intensive health care is readily available, with the Western Maryland Health System’s Sacred Heart and Memorial hospitals both located in nearby Cumberland, Md.
A range of engaging activities
Frostburg Heights hosts diverse resident activities that promote independence and nurture physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Ranging from holiday celebrations, summer cookouts, multi-denominational religious programs, musical events, and exercise classes, activities are tailored to residents’ interests.
In addition, the community features College of Knowledge events—educational how-to programs on such topics as fishing, candy-making, and crafts. Frostburg Heights also features a variety of social events designed around an active lifestyle.
Local communities are an integral part of Frostburg Heights. Together, community and staff work to offer support, suggestions, and recommendations that ultimately add to the quality of resident life.
A tradition of service
Celebrating 35 years of service in 2014, Frostburg Heights was constructed to meet the needs of the area’s older population. The apartment complex was constructed by Tressler Lutheran Services—now Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries—as part of Frostburg Village of Allegany County, which includes a nursing care center and assisted living community. That part of the village is now operated by another health-care provider.
