Doctor’s Building

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn 1915 Dr. O.S. Haverfield built a hospital in Hardin on 3rd Street.  The hospital was known as the Haverfield General Hospital and modern medicine was introduced to Big Horn County.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis little white house had served as a rectory for the Catholic priest, but was moved from its original site to a place behind the Hospital as a home for nurses.  The young nurses didn’t care to rent the house so it became a place for them to rest between shifts.  When a new community hospital was built in 1959, the Haverfield hospital became a Nursing Home and this little white house again became a rental property.

In 1991 this building was moved to the Museum and it now houses items related to early day medicine.
