House of Ill Repute Becomes a Hospital

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

The city started out with a small infirmary, but the building was inadequate.  Huntsville Hospital moved to its current location in 1904.  Mollie Teal donated the building and land to the city.  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.
