Veteran's Hospital

A/Z Theme - Sights and Sites of Arizona
V - Veterans Hospital



This is a view of the Veteran's Hospital located in Prescott.  To the right is the actual hospital.  To the left area small house looking buildings. They are part of what was Fort Whipple when Prescott was first being lived in.  You can take tours of Fort Whipple; we never did since they were opened just on Saturdays of the weekend and not Sundays and it was hard for us to remember to get there on Saturday for some strange reason. 

The view is pretty impressive too, don't you think?

Betty,

You've collected a lot of nice pics of AZ and things I didn't know were there.

I love the view! Our veterans hospital here closed down a few years back and is now an eye sore.

Now that you're in Phoenix, you can return to Prescott as a tourist. You will have Saturday free instead of scurrying around completing a to-do list of chores and grocery shopping.

Yes it is a beautiful view, and the VA Hospitals, with all the bad publicity, are a blessing. I am one of the bunch that has nothing but good to say about the VA, they have been good to me when I needed them.
Love from the little house

This is indeed a beautiful view and one I have enjoyed many times staying at the Prescott resort but I have also viewed the area from the inside of hospital and not on a tour. The veterans have received very good care here.

A very impressive view. There are some old forts near us from colonial days.

Great picture. The houses must be quite old, mustn't they?
