The Rheinfrank Hospital (Getz House):


The peaked roof of this structure is the former home of George Getz, built between 1860 and 1870 and later added to and converted into the Rheinfrank Hospital just west of Hood Park. Some people know it better as the River House.

In 1897 Dr. John H. Rheinfrank, then the owner, had his architect son George convert the building into a hospital with the two-story wing on the west side.

Another change, made then or at a later date, squared off the angle formed by the "L." The hospital gained considerable fame as a thyroid treatment facility.

Today the building is leased office space, the hospital having been closed in the 1950s.
