The Villa St. Elizabeth, Home for the Aged is located on the former estate of the wealthy textile baron and philanthropist, Gustav Oberlaender. Oberlaender together with the brothers Thun owned the Textile, Berkshire and Narrow Fabric Knitting Mills. The 8.6-acre estate was home to a 42,000 square-foot mansion in Wyomissing Park in Reading, Pennsylvania. The mansion was constructed with 1926 with ballroom, reception hall, library, and formal dining room used by Oberlaender to entertain heads of state and dignitaries from overseas. The mansion was surrounded by neatly manicured lawns and gardens framed by exotic trees imported from around the country. The grounds, with its tree-lined walkways, sprawling lawns, and bursts of colorful flowers created a peaceful park-like setting for the home. Today, the Villa St. Elizabeth is owned by Evergreen Elder Care, Inc. and serves as retirement community.

Persons associated include: Gustav Oberlaender (former owner) and Evergreen Elder Care, Inc. (owner).
