Old Ashe County Hospital For Sale

There are a lot of historic buildings represented in the Images of North Carolina collection on DigitalNC, but it’s not often that you have a chance to buy one. I just saw through the Preservation North Carolina website that the Old Ashe County Hospital is up for sale.

For just under half a million dollars you could own the building that served as the community hospital for nearly 30 years.  There are a handful of historic photos of the building on DigitalNC, part of the large collection of images from the Ashe County Public Library.  Most of the photos show the exterior, including a couple of the dedication of the hospital, but there is one showing an early operating room.
