Resident Owned Cooperative

Louis Hinders, a life-long Canyon resident, determined a need for affordable, independent senior citizen housing in the Texas Panhandle. He and a group of interested citizens formed a Founding Board and after six years of planning, obtained community backing, and in 1984 Palo Duro Retirement Village became a reality. Louis and his wife, Carolyn, have passed on, but their vision of a distinguished retirement community lives on.

 “I love living at Palo Duro Village! MY apartment is a perfect size, with more storage than I had in my house, and it's a blessing to not have to worry about maintenance. If you're over 45, able to live independently, and enjoy occasional pot lucks, come join us!"
