I was stationed at Ft. Wolters after vietnam from 1968-1969 Beach Hospital was a busy facility at the time, who would guess it would deteoriate to the condition it is in today, SAD.

Tim, we have purchased the old Army hospital in Mineral Wells. I bet my husband and his brothers would love to take you on a tour and have you tell them your story. The history of the facility is such a wonderful thing to hear.

I would love to tour it. I was one of the first babies born there April 3rd 1957, it was built March 1957. I have 843 posts of pictures and video's of Mineral Wells and the area with a few of the Hospital on a Google Plus collection, "Mineral Wells, Texas/Then & Now". I also have a collection of artifacts & books of the subject. My dad came from Georgia, was stationed at Wolters during the Korean Conflict, my grand father was a painter on the base and went to help rebuild Pearl Harbor after the attacks. My two uncles went to Vietnam from Mineral Wells and were there during the Tet Offensive.

I was born here, 1970. My dad was stationed at Fort Wolters after he came back from Viet Nam. He says this was a very nice, modern hospital. It's crazy what they have allowed to happen to it.

We stopped by here today, first time I have been back since I was born there in 1972 while my dad was stationed there. There are gates up all around it, would have loved to go inside!

Re-visited Beach Army Hospital before MWHS Home Coming Game on October 7th 2016. Having been born there, days after it opened, it made me feel old looking at something that belonged in a Stephen King movie. Many pictures of Beach Army Hospital in my Google+ collection, "Mineral Wells, Texas/Then & Now".

I see you were there recently, too!

It seemed relatively safe, I only went into the bottom floor on both sides. I hope to go back and take video footage. A lot of decay but looks structurally sound. Might make a great haunted house. If you liked Lonesome Dove, the cattleman Gus was fashioned by lived nine miles North of town West of the State marker for him. His name was Oliver Loving & I have pictures in my Google Plus collection.

I was there this past weekend doing location scouting for a film I'm planning. At least one of the owners was there along with a crew that was working inside the building. The owner that I spoke to gave me permission to photograph the building and did say the police will arrest trespassers. If the police were to show up he said to let them know he was aware of my presence and had his permission. I told him I was only interested in the exterior of the building and had no intention of entering it.

The Beach Army Hospital is getting a new life. As of Feb 2017, it has been bought and is being renovated into a HVAC training center.

My husbands family are renovating the hospital into an HVAC trade school. If anyone has any pictures from the early life of the hospital and are willing to share we would love to use them as wall decoration. Thank you!!!

Tracy - please contact me, I'd love to get you a print of a pic I took last time there when your family let me and my kid roam the place

Tracy, is there a way to contact you to possibly set up a tour for a college project I'm working on. I would like to be able to take some pictures if possible.

I am very interested in helping develop an HVAC trade school. I am in the business and after 30 years I need to look at something else.. I saw this facility this weekend as I was visiting the Baker Hotel site.. I would be interested in helping your husband in any way possible because this trade needs people BAD!!

My Brother was on the Base in 1971 with a company to paint barracks. It had rained . His ladder fell on high wire and was electrocuted. He passed at this hospital. We just found out 2 yrs ago that this is where he passed away.

Not sure but after the attacks on Pearl Harbor my grandfather Charles Davis went to Pearl for clean-up, I think through Camp Wolters. Pepaw was the town painter for Mineral Wells for years and I can remember seeing him paint both exit and entrance signs to the town. It might be possible he knew your brother back in the day. I was 14 in 1971. I have a photo in Google Plus of my grandfather's painter's group.

I was stationed at Beach when I got back from Viet Nam in the fall of 1966. It was a great place for newly wedded couple believe it or not. I was promoted to CPT there . I'd love to here from any MSC offers who were there from 1966 to early 68
