Marker Text A native of Gonzales County, Dr. George Holmes (1881-1948) began practicing medicine in Gonzales in 1915. His dream of a fully equipped hospital for the county seat was realized with the completion of this hospital building in 1921. Constructed by contractor Fred Miesenhelder, the two-story red brick building features a Spanish tile roof and a bracketed porch. It served as hospital and administrative offices until 1978.
