The History of MHK Hospitals: The Many Faces of Parkview
Jill Frese will be presenting her research on Manhattan’s history of early medicine, doctors, nursing school, pest houses, ambulance service, the different hospital sites, nursing homes, and more. There have been many changes over the years with medical buildings changing names, ownership, and locations. Jill has researched as early as possible, from the earliest hospital east of the Rockies to present day.
Did you know that the Old Saint Mary Hospital that was built in 1907, which is no longer a hospital, is said to be haunted by two spirits from its hospital days? Since it is October, Jill will be talking about the hauntings.
Jill Meyers Frese has been enjoying the field of genealogy for over 40 years. She is very involved in DNA testing and has two programs coming up - Different DNA testing in Hiawatha and Victorian Mourning in Topeka. Jill has written and published many articles. Her classes and speaking engagements mix humor with real-life experiences along with sound genealogical research.
