Former Lutheran Hospital, Boarded Up

In contrast to Barnes-Jewish-Children’s Hospital, which is constantly demolishing, rebuilding and expanding, when we head to the South Side, we discover that the old Lutheran Hospital, whose original post is one of my most popular, is seeing a different future.

I was surprised to see that the first floor windows and doors of the entire complex have been boarded up, signaling that there is no occupied future for these buildings, some of which date back to the Nineteenth Century.

Even the newer wing, which dates from the mid-Twentieth Century, is being mothballed.
