[I&GN Railroad Hospital - 919 S. Magnolia]

[I&GN Railroad Hospital - 919 S. Magnolia]

Date: c. 1940
Creator: unknown
Description: The I&GN Hospital, one of the most noteworthy landmarks in all of Palestine, has been a prominent fixture in the predominantly residential neighborhood south of the downtown area since its construction in 1921. The 3-story, metal-framed, brick-faced hospital, along with associated outbuilding (the Nurses Home), occupies an entire block. The building has a box-like massing with some Classical Revival detailing, especially around the primary entrance. The wide, cast stone bands divide the exterior into three components and emphasize the horizontal massing of the building. The hospital and nurses home retain their integrity to a remarkable degree. The International & Great Northern Railroad operated a hospital for its employees on this site beginning in 1884. Prominent Houston architect Alfred E. Finn designed the present building for the railroad, which formally opened in July 1922. Local architect Theodore S. Maffitt designed the adjacent nurses’ quarters in 1924. The main building served as medical offices for physicians in private practice for years, with the Nurses building serving as the headquarters of the Palestine chapter of the Red Cross, but both buildings have been mostly vacant for several years now.
