Grand View Hospital celebrating more than 100 years of service to the community.
This picture shows the 1915 dedication of the newly formed hospital.
The hospital would have many more celebrations over the years. One yearly celebration became know as the Lawn Fete.
The Dedications and Lawn Fete's were for the purpose of necessary fund raising.

On October 4, 2016 in Harrisburg the Highland Park Camp Meeting will be reviewed by the Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Board.
The Board will decide whether or not to forward the nomination to the National Park Service for listing on the National Register.
Highland Park is eligible for the National Register for its important local example of the camp meeting movement and is a good example of the typical design and building types associated with camp meetings in the late 19th century.
It also has remarkably retained many of the characteristics of its early construction.
To be listed on the National Register is an honor and a tribute to those who have lovingly maintained Highland Park for nearly 125 years.
In the first week of September cottage owners will receive a letter from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission notifying them of the upcoming meeting.
The letter will also explain that the National Register does not impose any restrictions on the use or alterations of buildings.
As of the beginning of March 2017 the National Park Service has the nomination for Highland Park. We will post any updates when we hear from the Park Service.
