In 1873 Peter Van Dyke built this Beautiful second empire-style home in Lapeer. In 1924 the grand old house was converted into a nine bedroom hospital with surgeries taking place on the upper floor. Back in the day, it was common for large houses to be used as a hospital. Doctors did not have the array of sophisticated equipment that is available today. By 1953 the old house was no longer practical as a hospital and was converted into apartments and remains as an apartment complex today.
