The Miners Union Hospital on Wednesday morning, Feb. 5.
A $418,000 project to rehabilitate the 106-year-old Miners Union Hospital has gotten a big boost with the awarding of a $200,000 grant from the State Historical Fund.
San Juan County sought the grant in September 2013 which will include restoring the building’s exterior, roof, doors and windows.
It will also include making the building handicapped-accessible with the installation of an elevator.
The county also hopes to get a $198,335 grant from the Department of Local Affairs to help finance the project, with the work to be done this summer.
The building’s long-neglected interior would then hopefully be rehabilitated in 2015.
