Don’t just live Here.  Flourish.


There’s so much to do here, you’ll be hard-pressed to be a homebody.  You can take a painting class or sharpen your skills in our woodworking shop.  Some days, you’ll want to relax by the fire with your favorite book or watch a movie in our stadium-seat theater.  Discover our new and exciting venue, The Gallery.  Soaring two stories, The Gallery is home to Lola’s Bar and The Gallery Loft Library.

Like living in a college town, Southminster stresses lifelong learning and offers engaging lectures on the arts, history, and culture.  We also take many trips to area and regional attractions, and help you strengthen social bonds, make new friends, and use your gifts by volunteering.

Find out what appeals to you, and flourish. Start by joining one of our resident committees. Here you’ll develop relationships with other residents, form lasting friendships while working collaboratively toward the betterment of your community, focusing on the lifestyle issues that mean the most to you. But don’t stop there. There’s plenty more to keep you informed, involved and stimulated.
