FE188 Burrell Memorial

Description

Roanoke's first African American hospital, Burrell Memorial, was founded in 1915 in a small cottage on Henry Street. It soon outgrew the Henry Street location and moved into the former Alleghany Institute, a school for boys located at 611 McDowell Avenue, in 1921. By the early 1950s, Burrell Memorial had outgrown this building and a new hospital was constructed in 1955 on the same site.
