John Braun | Garden Terrace a well-kept secret

Some people say that Garden Terrace is one of the best-kept secrets around. What they mean is that the owner, Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Homes, is a charitable, nonprofit corporation and that the 146 apartments of Garden Terrace are managed so well that the public is seldom called on for support.
