A lot has changed over the past 57 years. We've gone from phonographs to
iPods, typewriters to computers and the Earth to the Moon. We've had 11
Presidents and 5 Cowboys' Super Bowl victories. We even went from 48 to
50 states in this great land. But what hasn't changed over the past 57 years is
the primary goal of The Legacy at Preston Hollow - to serve Jewish Seniors
with dignity, professionalism and care. That's the promise we made 57 years
ago and that's the promise we keep today.
