Welcome to

Barb City Manor


Barb City Manor is a not-for-profit retirement home for senior citizens age 62 and older.  Our mission is to serve low to moderate income seniors in safety and comfort.

Established in 1979, our not-for-profit provides an alternative for people 62 years and older who no longer want the responsibility of home ownership. 

We are located 6 blocks from downtown DeKalb, Illinois in the historic Joseph F. Glidden and Jacob F. Haish hospital. Well-kept lawns, trees and flowers add to the comfort and residential feel of home.
