Board members of the Pratt Newton Memorial Home for Aged Women have announced that the facility on Main Street in Sherburne, Chenango County will be closing its doors at the end of the month.

The home has been in operation since it was founded in 1932 by Carrie Pratt and Grace Newton who donated their home and created trust funds to pay for its operation.

A press release issued by the board said the facility could no longer operate due to rising costs and falling income. Meanwhile the board is hoping to find other non-profits that would like to locate in Sherburne.
