Description:

In March 1958, the community of Yucca Valley decided that the surrounding communities needed a hospital . To raise money for this project, the community leaders sold raffle tickets to give away a brand new house. In the true spirit of the Morongo Basin, land was donated and contractors along with others in the community gave their time and expertise to build what became known as “The Hospital House”. Steve Hanson will tell this fascinating story of a community that made a dream come true.

The Morongo Basin Historical Society”s program of community interest presented at the Hi-Desert Nature Museum on the 2nd Wednesday of every month beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Please join us – membership not required.
