Dumbleyung District Memorial HospitalPrint Page Print this page

Dumbleyung District Memorial Hospital was built as a memorial to Dumbleyung's fallen soldiers.

The 2nd September 1925 saw the laying of the Foundation Stone, by Eliza Cronin, as the oldest pioneering woman in the district. Mrs W. Bennett and Mrs I. Bairstow were also recognised for their contribution to the district. The hospital was opened in November 1925 with a annual subsidy from the Road Board, which saw it as one of the few hospitals out of debt.
