Following the fire at Andrew Kaul Memorial Hospital on Nov. 27, 1934, all that was left of the structure was its stone walls. Everything that had been made of wood inside the building was destroyed in the blaze, according to local historian Ray Beimel.
With the hospital destroyed, the Benedictine Sisters stepped in and made a big sacrifice for the benefit of the community.
