Frederiksted Hospital Sanitation System – Frederiksted, St. Croix VI

Description

The Works Progress Administration built a new cistern and carried out the repairs and extension of the water and sewer systems, at Frederiksted Hospital.

The plaque placed in 2004 by the St. Croix Historic Preservation Commission at the site of the former hospital reads: “Frederiksted Hospital – Erected as a 2-story town house in 1803 by the DaCosta family, this sturdy building has been greatly modified over the years. Major alterations occurred in the 1930’s, when the residence was converted into Frederiksted’s main hospital.”
