  1. Kirk House

    As the text suggests, Bath Memorial Hospital was the proper name — the Ira Davenport designation would come about 20 years later, for new construction in the next municipality. The “old hospital,” expanded by the PWA, is now used by Pro Action, a social-service agency. The map and address shown as of 10/11/2020 are for the NEW Davenport Hospital. The OLD Bath Memorial is at 117 East Steuben Street, Bath.
