Vintage Images of Butler Hospital in Providence

These images are from circa 1910 or before.

Opened in 1847 as the result of a grant from Nicholas Brown, one of the wealthy Brown brothers. Lovecraft’s father, Winfield, was admitted here in 1893 and remained until his death on 19 July 1898. In early 1919, Lovecraft’s mother had a collapse and she entered the hospital on March 13. She died there on 24 May 1921—as the result of a possibly bungled gall bladder operation.
