History of Plymouth Hospital with Dan Buckman
The dream of Rev. Martin Schmidt of St. John Lutheran Church, the Plymouth Hospital opened in 1917 in a former cow pasture at the south end of Selma Street, three years after Rev. Schmidt began marshaling community support for the project. After additions in 1927 and 1956, continued growth and demand led to the construction of an all-new hospital to the south, connected to the original hospital by an underground passage, which opened in 1970. The facility is no longer a hospital but still serves as an acute care center and outpatient clinic.
Dan Buckman, Plymouth Historical Society, will present a morning of memories.
