Scenes From the U.S. Marine Hospital

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 at 4:23 PM

Last weekend, developer Lauren Crews and architect Chooch Pickard of City South Ventures opened the long-vacant U.S. Marine Hospital for self-guided tours.

Crews purchased the property years ago, and now he's pushing a plan to transform the hospital into apartments before possibly persuing other major development projects in and around the historic French Fort neighborhood.

The hospital treated U.S. Marine mariners back in the late 1800s. The main hospital building, a nurses' building, and a maintenance structure have sat decaying on the property next to the Metal Museum for decades.
