     Mercy Hospital, shown her in 1918, was built in 1898 on Grove
Street in Prescott, AZ. The hospital chapel on the left contained
the magnificent stained glass windows, which were made in
Germany in 1906, that ultimately ended up in Fain Chapel in
Prescott Valley.
     The chapel windows were salvaged and stored away after the
hospital burned down on June 8th, 1940. The chapel and the one
story building in front survived the fire and are the only parts of
the complex that still stand today. A new brick building was built
in front of the old chape
l.
     This is a picture of the same area today. These buildings are
now part of Prescott College
