Introducing Murray House Assisted Living

Murray House has been caring for women and men of all races and religions with graciousness and hospitality since it was founded in 1829.  Then it was known as the Women’s Benevolent Home.  Through the years it has served as a home for elderly, women, orphans and widows of Confederate Soldiers, and as a respite home for caregivers during the yellow fever epidemic.

In 1994, the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast took over the facility, and began making preparations to renovate.

In 1997, the facility was opened, and it has evolved into the assisted living residence facility and offices, as you see it today, and it was renamed Murray House in honor of the Rt. Rev. George M. Murray, the first Bishop of the Diocese.
