The May 11, 1922, issue of The Republican Journal announced: "Work has begun on the Tapley Hospital, the Glover house, so called, and recently presented by Mr. & Mrs. Charles Bradbury to Dr. Eugene Tapley. The stable and ell are being taken down by Bernes O. Norton and Fred G. Gray, who have bought the materials. Frank H. Hoag has the contract for the masonry and Edward E. Babcock has charge of the remodeling of the main house and the annex sufficiently large enough to make an up to date hospital of twenty or more rooms, with a lavatory, elevator etc. It is expected to have the building completed early in July." Bradbury Memorial Hospital opened on High Street at the end of December 1922.
