Good Samaritan Hospital

This is the Good Samaritan Hospital, which was located 405 West Hill Street. Built in 1888, it is the first hospital for blacks in North Carolina. Like St. Peter's, the women of St. Peter's Episcopal, led by Jane Smedberg Wilkes, raised the funds for this hospital which operated into the 1960s before becoming part of what later became Charlotte Memorial Hospital, which later renamed itself the Carolinas Healthcare System. The buildings were demolished to make way for the Panthers football stadium.
