A sensible, affordable option in independent living for retirees.

The Louis F. Payn Foundation is a private, not-for-profit retirement residence located in the Village of Chatham, New York. Called “The Payn Home” by locals for more than 80 years, the home is a sensible, affordable option for the independent retired person.

A handsome brick building constructed in 1929 on Coleman Street, the Payn Home remains the realization of a philanthropist’s dream. Louis F. Payn endowed a foundation in his own name to maintain a gracious haven for older members of the local community.

Set amid great trees and well-tended gardens, the Payn Home still provides today a welcoming and surprisingly affordable home for some twenty-four men and women.
