Cumberland View Towers (CVT) is located on high ground above the picturesque Cumberland River right near the spot where Ellen G. White’s boat docked, she went ashore, and the Madison history was born. It is located at 1201 Cheyenne Boulevard in Madison, Tennessee and is an eleven-story building with 150 one-bedroom apartments and one two-bedroom apartment. It also has a banquet/gathering room, laundry room, recreation center, kitchen, library, and computer lab. The mission of CVT is to provide an environment of housing to low income elderly that will be conducive to their personal growth, safety, and life satisfactions.
