Center for HealingThe Clarysville Inn once stood in front of you to the right. In this tavern, and in a complex of buildings constructed around it, the United States established a general hospital during the Civil War. On March 6, 1862, U.S. soldiers commandeered the inn and began to fill it with their sick an wounded comrades who had been crowded into filthy, badly lit, and poorly ventilated buildings in Cumberland. Following the construction of wards and other structures, this hospital complex provided medical care to thousands of Union soldiers as well as some Confederates. Each ward had two rows of iron cots with an aisle down the center.
