Elmwood at the Shawhan

Originally built in 1904, The Shawhan Hotel was one of Ohio’s finest hotels. It housed fancy dinners and elegant parties in the Emerald Room and gave business owners a prime location on East Perry Street. The building withstood the test of time, surviving a major flood of Tiffin Ohio in 1913, and a major fire in 1976. Renovations began in 1996 to restore this gracious building. It was reopened in 1999 as an assisted living community. Purchased by Elmwood in 2001, it became Elmwood Assisted Living at The Shawhan, part of the Elmwood family of healthcare communities. Once again, an anchor of the downtown, the 53-suite/66-bed assisted living community is warm and welcoming. Classic and timeless décor adorns the many living rooms, parlors, and libraries with fireplaces, perfect settings for visiting with family and friends. Residents and their guests may also enjoy elegant dining rooms, a solarium and courtyard, ice cream parlor, chapel, beauty shoppe and community room.
