Elliot Hall was built in 1931 and was used as the institution’s on site hospital and admitting offices. Elliot Hall was used right up until the early 80’s as the medical center for Willard. Doctors were brought in from neighboring communities to perform medical procedures and surgeries. One of the people on the tour said her mother worked as a nurse at Willard and had her molars removed at Elliot Hall. Try finding employee health benefits like that now!
Elliot Hall is still used today as a training facility for Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Officers and has been well maintained. For the most part it looks just like any other hospital you would find in use today.
