The Village was founded in 2 June 1974, just two days short of six years after North Sydney Council first decided to involve itself in the housing of the municipality's aged. Sir Roden Cutler, the Govenor of NSW, opened James Milson Village, the biggest project of its kind in North Sydney Council's history and the first retirement village built by a local government in the state.
In the years that followed there was a pressing need for increased care and in 1980 after lengthy negotiations, an adjoining block of land was purchased. This became the site for the current Nursing Home which was built and commenced operations on the 10 October 1982 after the NSW Governor, Air Marshal Sir James Rowland officiated the opening ceremony.
The 1990's saw additions, added to both the Hostel and the Nursing Home to increase bed numbers on site. Camaraigal House was also built and was opened on 20 March 2005 by the Governor of NSW Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC. This added an additional 58 self-contained units to James Milson Village.
Since the idea for the village was born in 1968 by a North Sydney social worker (Helen Ryan), who believed that there was a need for the aged to be accommodated and cared for in the area.
James Milson Village has grown into a multifaceted facility that provides comfortable accommodation for 240 residents.
