WESTerday Trivia Answer: Madonna Manor

Take a drive along Ellis Avenue, and as you approach Westland Plaza, you’ll notice something peeking over the tree line. That tall building that you see is none other than (A.) Madonna Manor–the answer to today’s trivia.

Madonna Manor was built in 1971 and serves as home to low-income residents aged 55 and older.  In 2007, the 149-unit facility was purchased by The Wishcamper Companies and $5.5 million of renovations were performed on the building. These renovations included new finishes and appliances.

Amenities and services at Madonna Manor include an on-site laundry facility, beauty salon, computer lab, onsite nutritionist, community room, and a walking path.

So next time you’re on Ellis, and you see a skyscraper (in Mississippi terms) in the middle of a neighborhood–you know it’s Madonna Manor.
