Thanks to a generous donation in 1910, Mary Schneck (1837-1914) contributed land and $5,000 to build the hospital as a memorial to her late husband, Louis Schneck (1831-1905), one of Seymour's pioneer industrialists.
Jackson County Schneck Memorial Hospital opened its doors in 1911 as a 17-bed facility with the finest staff and equipment available at the time.
