Huntsville Hospital History

Pic Huntsville Hospital

Huntsville Hospital is located in downtown Huntsville, Alabama, and it has a very interesting history.

It started as a small infirmary, but the building was too small and a new location was badly needed to service the community.

Huntsville Hospital moved to its current location in 1904.  The building and land were donated to the city by Mollie Teal.  Prior to the donation, she used the property to run a prostitution business.

From house of ill repute to city hospital, I think that’s an interesting story.
