Julia Hasse Memorial Missionary Home
In 1949, the home was renamed the Julia Hasse Memorial Missionary Home in honor of Mrs. Julia Hasse, who passed away after years of serving missionaries, and her daughter Julia Hasse-Dibble, who died on the mission field.

In 1952, the home moved to a three-story building in Union City, New Jersey, that could accommodate more missionary guests.

CMML Missionary Guest Home
In July 1972, the home relocated to Wall Township, New Jersey, to become part of Christian Missions in Many Lands, Inc., and was renamed the CMML Missionary Guest Home.

The main building, once called Boxwood Manor, was built by William Buchsbaum in 1930, and in the 1940s, the Sisters of Saint Joseph used it as a convent. They added on the home's west wing and sold the surrounding farmland. In 1972, the sisters sold the building and remaining property to CMML.
Missionary Guest Home History

Julia Hasse & Raymond Dibble & 2 sons

Julia Hasse-Dibble and her husband, Raymond Dibble, were pioneer missionaries in Nigeria. In 1927, Julia became very sick with malaria while pregnant with her fourth child. She developed blackwater fever, and she and her baby girl died.

The story of her passing and her last words—“Tell them they have chosen the best; follow on to the end. Oh, why do not more young people give themselves to the Lord”—became a rallying cry for more workers on the field that were “raised up by God to replace those so laid away.”
