Status: Former Hospital; Abandoned; For Sale
This is the second hospital on this location. The first one was in a converted house and only had a 3 bed capacity.
Sometime in the early 1960’s this much larger and modern – for the time – hospital was opened. Details are scare on the history of this small town hospital but it appears to have operated until 1995 – although some accounts place the closing in the late 80’s or earlier in the 90’s.
There is asbestos in the building; estimates say everything from just around the pipes (which may be a confusion with lead paint) to being full of it. Considering the time period it was built in the latter has a greater chance of being correct. Either way this asbestos prevents the building from being demolished and puts a hefty price tag on anyone dealing with the abatement to repurpose the building.
