The Justus Contracting Company changed the name to The Justus Company.

In 1962 Walter E. Justus developed and built the company’s most innovative concept, Crestwood Village Senior Community. Walter recognized a need for quality senior housing and the senior members of his church had been asking “why don’t you build something for us?”  They leased the first three Crestwood buildings as fast as they could build them!

In 1967 Walter E. Justus retired and his son Walter G. “Wally” Justus became president of the company.
