Although the name of this building is not that of a hospital it did for a number of years operate much like a hospital. In fact Dan and several of his brothers were born here along with many of our cousins. There is a granite stone near the top of the building with the name Morton and the date of 1936. Dan also reports this was the scene of his childhood dental experience. The dental office was in the top floor on the north (front left side) of this building. This building is located on north 7th street between 1st and 2nd Avenue. This building has been converted to apartments. The wood frame building to the south (right) was Neimeth Printing during the 1950's and early 1960's.

As we mentioned above, this building has been converted to apartments and the awning above the door indicates it is called, "Courtview Apartments" an indication that it is directly across the street from the new courthouse (keep in mind that we call it the new courthouse even though it was built in the 1950's). Other than the addition of a pitched metal roof this building does not seem to have had anoy other exterior modifications.
Although the only connection between the picture below and the Park View Clinic building is that they are next door neighbors, we thought that we'd show this picture as well. We took both of these pictures on February 23, 2005 and the building below, during our childhood years, was a Funeral Home (we think Furman's but aren't real sure on the name) and its outward appearance has not changed much over the years. We do have a memory that this originally had a red clay tile roof and it appears that there has been a small addition on the garage portion of the building. Another memory is that during the middle 1950's through the 1960's the organist for the Christian Church (diagonally across the street) lived in the upstairs apartment of this building. We do note that its new owner is the Edward Jones Investments.
