Early Porter Rodgers Hospital was on Woodruff Street.
Here's a good picture of the old historic hospital that was named Porter Rodgers Hospital. You can see the sign nicely. It was on Woodruff Street in Searcy AR. It appears to have been raining when the picture was taken. History seems to say that the hospital started out as Wakenight Sanitarium and was built in 1920. Dr. Rodgers bought it in 1943 and renamed it.
In 1947 a big addition was made to the hospital and brought rooms up to 50 or more. This picture seems to show where a driveway had been and probably led to a house that was torn down for the addition. It also shows what looks like a fine older home that had the addition attached.
This picture was shared with me by Sherry Quattlebaum Person, whose father collected lots of pictures.
One other small thing. When was the front changed to look like this?
