PARKERSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA:   A VINTAGE PORTRAIT

THE PARKERSBURG CITY HOSPITAL



Parkersburg's 40-bed City Hospital (seen here around 1906) was opened in 1898 at 508 Thirteenth Street, opposite St. Mary's Avenue. The building later became the St. Raphael's Convent for the Sisters of the Poor Child Jesus when the hospital was moved to the large Johnson Newlon Camden home at Eighth and Ann Streets after Camden's death in 1909 (below). It later became Camden-Clark Hospital. The old building on Thirteenth, which extended half a block behind the eastside houses in the 1200 block of Quincy Street, was torn down to make way for the Greenbrier Apartments in the late 1960s.
