SILVER REEF HOSPITAL
Silver Reef, Utah
HISTORYFather Lawrence Scanlan established the St. John's Catholic Church, the Silver Reef Hospital, and St. Mary's School in Silver Reef.
The miners donated money each week to help finance the building of the hospital which cost $2,149. It was completed in 1879.
When the hospital closed after the silver boom, Robert Lund purchased the lumber from it to build a home in St. George.
