Pictured here are buildings in the Stafford Village Retirement Community. The photograph was taken April 10, 2021, prior to the buildings' demolition, and was taken from the corner of Hartford Street and Stafford Avenue looking northeast.

In the foreground a yard sign states "National Church Residences/Stafford Village/A Senior Residential Community." In 2015, National Church Residences (NCR) purchased the 65 units composing Stafford Village. NCR already owned the 23 units making up Stafford Court, located across Hartford Street from Stafford Village. NCR had managed Stafford Village since 2001, although the property was owned by an independent board that included representatives of Worthington Presbyterian Church.

Within five years of its opening in January 1971, Stafford Village had become a popular residence for senior citizens in the community, with waitlists of three years for an efficiency apartment and seven years for a one-bedroom place.

In 2018, NCR announced a redevelopment of the Village, with plans to tear down 57 units and replace them with an 85-unit apartment building featuring a mix of one- and two-bedroom units. After two years of community discussion and redesign, the city gave NCS its approval to go ahead with the project in July of 2020. Official groundbreaking for the project took place on May 13, 2021.
