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
