VISIT THE FORMER LYING-IN HOSPITAL
At 838 West 5th Street in Oxnard, California, there stands a senior citizen housing complex today, called Casa Merced. However, in the early part of the 20th century it was a hospital with the strange name "Lying-In Hospital and Sanitorium." In the lobby of the present complex is a small but interesting museum fro which you can learn about the history of the building.
The building is especially important to me. I was born there in 1944.
