Description Catholic Chapel and first St. Elizabeth Hospital. The Catholic Chapel was built by Father Dielman in 1871, first church in Baker City. When the Cathedral was built beginning about 1905, the chapel was moved north to the NW corner of 1st and Madison.
The hospital was built in 1875 to house the Notre Dame Academy. Renamed St. Francis Academy in 1885, the building served as a school until 1892, when the Catholic Church acquired the James W. Virtue house, added a wing and turned it into a school. The building served as a Caltholic hospital from 1885 to 1915, when the stone St. Elizabeth Hospital was built on 4th St.
