The David and Grace Harman Family Home was the boyhood home of Pete Harman, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which he donated to the City for use as a senior recreation center. The house was originally built in 1918 and remodeled in 1989 before Harman turned it over to the city.
Today, the Harman Senior Recreation Center provides West Valley City's
senior residents with access to community resources and programs that
enhance dignity, support independence, encourage community involvement,
and stimulate physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Transportation to and from the Harman Senior Recreation Center is available for seniors living in West Valley City.
