NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State officials have dedicated a new state veterans home in Clarksville.

Gov. Bill Haslam and other state officeholders and lawmakers dedicated the new Brig. Gen. Wendell H. Gilbert Tennessee State Veterans Home on Monday.

Officials say the facility includes 108 beds in nine separate homes. Each home includes separate cottages with individual kitchens, fireplaces and a central lounge area.

The 103,000-square-foot campus also features an industrial-sized kitchen, bistro and large dining area. It also has a library, physical therapy resources, chapel, barber shop and salon as well as multiple patios and walking areas.

The home admitted five residents in late December.
