“Sanborn House Keeps Getting Better”

We should all be proud of what the Winchester Historical Society and the greater Winchester community has accomplished here at the Sanborn House.  For an informal summary of what we’ve done over the past few years and to learn about some of our thoughts for the future, take a look at this article from last week’s Daily Times Chronicle.

The Birth of Winchester Hospital

The Trials and Triumphs of the Early Years

In honor of the hospital’s centennial, historian Ellen Knight, author of Winchester Hospital: Our First Century, will present an illustrated talk about the events and conditions leading up to that moment and the challenges the hospital and the community overcame to keep its hospital going in its early decades.

In recognition of Women’s History Month, the program will also highlight the courageous women who founded the hospital and others (including the Winton Club and EnKa Society) who helped keep it going.
