Eatonville’s first hospital and staff. In fact, if you look off to the right you can see a carpenter still working on it.
“The first doctor, D. A. Martiny, came in 1904. Before 1910 he built The Lumbermen’s Hospital, the first hospital, at the corner of Mashell Ave. N. and Lynch Street across form where the high school stands.” (Timber Town and Later, by Edith Erickson)
The building still stands today.
If anyone has information on the nursing staff back then, I’d love to give the ladies some credit.
