House of Refuge – Leamington

OK, County Historians, what can you tell me about this place?

It looks like it was quite a grand place. A bit of googling brought me to this document here, that makes it look like it was built around 1900 maybe a little before, and sometime before 1961, became known as the Sun Parlour Home For Senior Citizens.

An old folks home?
