Own a Piece of Local History!
Thanks to the St. Joseph's Hospital Auxiliary, Highland area residents can purchase a commemorative brick from the old facility on Main Street!
Purchasing a brick can be an ideal way to reflect on your personal connection to the old hospital as a tangible keepsake of "days gone by" in Highland. It's the perfect symbol of the 136-year heritage the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis have established here.
A limited quantity of commemorative bricks preserved during the demolition of the old SJH are now available for sale in the new SJH Gift Shop (12866 Troxler Avenue in Highland) from Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
