Penrose Hospital Expansion: Moved Houses
(Click on images to enlarge. If the click does not work, refresh the page and try again.)
In the mid 70s, the Penrose/Glockner Hospital administration, recognizing the need to expand out of the 2 square block area bounded by Cascade, Tejon, Madison, and Jackson, began in earnest to acquire residential properties directly east, between north Tejon and Nevada streets, a top priority being space for parking.*
Documented here is the relocation of residential buildings that were in the Hospital expansion area bounded by Tejon Street and Nevada Avenue on the west and east, and Madison Street and Jackson Street on the south and north.
The bottom Google Earth photo is a closeup look at the distribution of relocated houses within Colorado Springs.
The relocated houses marked in blue are originally from Tejon and Nevada streets, and are tagged with Numerals 1 to 14; those marked in magenta are originally from Madison, Monroe, and Tyler streets, and are tagged with Letters A through J.
The Numeral and Letter tag values correspond to similar values associated with the Current Addresses in the two pages of "Addresses & photos" linked above.
