Sunset Home Residents

 Sunset Home was created by Swedish Baptists to provide care for the aged in 1905 in Clay Center, Kansas.  It was moved to Concordia, Kansas in 1911.  It was open to all faiths, but the majority of residents had Swedish roots.  Resident, L. R. Graves, kept a notebook with personal information on his fellow residents.  I am in the process of adding those names to this page.

If you see you ancestor's name, contact me; I may or may not have a little additional information.
