Spanish Military Hospital

History:

The Spanish Military Hospital Museum building is a reconstruction of a Military Hospital that stood on this site during the Second Spanish Colonial Period, 1784-1821. Showcased in the museum are areas of Military Hospital life you would have experienced had you been a patient in 1791.
It consists of a few rooms which are recreations.
The mourning room which Equipped with the Priest's tools for blessing the patient before death occurred. The surgeons room which holds tools of the trade. The ward room is where the patients were kept. There is also an apothecary which is now what we would call a pharmacy.
If your in St. Augustine please go on one of their tours.
We were very happy to be invited back to the hospital to re-investigate for the third time. We would again like to thank Diane for the opportunity to obtain more evidence of paranormal activity to further our research.
