Culver Union Hospital Dedication -- 1902

After a long struggle to obtain support and funding, Culver Union Hospital eventually opened in 1902 on Binford Street. It was considered to be a very sanitary facility (to keep dust down, no upholstered furniture or hanging pictures were allowed, and room corners were rounded). This hospital served until 1929 when it was replaced by a much larger building (still standing today, but slowing crumbling). These three images are of the 1902 dedication ceremony program that we just scanned.
