Dr. Owen Taylor’s Hospital

Dr. Owen Taylor’s Hospital

We have the records for a patient that was admitted to Dr. Owen Taylor’s Hospital in Kent in 1910! It doesn’t say what was wrong with them, but the treatment consisted of a lot of milk & lime water, castor oil, antiseptic mouthwash and alcohol rubs, as well as some medicine. The patient was admitted for 46 days before they were discharged healthy.

Mountain Hiking in 1902

This photo wasn’t taken in Kent, but it is of some Kent residents on vacation! They are crossing a glacier near Monte Cristo on July 17, 1902. Can you imagine hiking in the snow in those dresses?!
“Monte Cristo is a ghost town northwest of Monte Cristo Peak, in eastern Snohomish County in western Washington. The town was active as a mining area for gold and silver from 1889 to 1907, and later became a resort town that operated until 1983.”- Wikipedia
