45-47 Summer Street

When Mrs. C.L. Hayes died in 1897 she willed her home here on Summer Street and about $40,000 to start a hospital. This was the first hospital in Dover and it continued operation until the 1930's. Two doctors who assisted the hospital lived nearby; Dr. Morgan across the street at No. 44 and Dr. Tolman who lived two doors down at No. 37.
