Point of Interest Details

241 Main - Evergreen Place / Ellendale Hospital / Site of Original Courthouse

The space now occupied by Evergreen Place was the site of the first Dickey County courthouse, which was erected in 1884-85. The building served not only the legal purposes of a courthouse, but was used for a wide variety of public events, including receptions, dances, roller skating, and even athletic practice.

The large new courthouse, on 2nd St. N., was built in 1911-12. In 1916 the Presbyterian congregation purchased the original building and disassembled it for the lumber.

In 1952, the fruits of a six-year quest were realized, as the doors were opened for the Dickey County Memorial Hospital. The hospital had 21 beds and the base charges were $8.00 per day. In 1958 air conditioning was installed in each room. In 1973 a major remodeling job was completed.

In 1995 the hospital closed its doors. Since then the building has functioned as an assisted living center.
