Ennis’s first permanent hospital costs $50,000

Continuing the history of the first large, permanent hospital in Ennis, I begin where I left off. After a committee was appointed in 1922 to scout out a location and explore avenues of funding, the matter came before the Ennis City Council. The Ennis Municipal Hospital’s May 1952 30th anniversary program, shared with me by Margie Holmes, reads: “In 1923 the City of Ennis raised bonds in the amount of $50,000 for the building of the hospital. These bonds bore 5 ½ % interest. They are not yet all paid off but have been refinanced and combined with other city bonds at a lower rate of interest. Their original identity is lost but they are being paid regularly by the city.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
