     History
    The Uptown Division was originally know as the Lenwood Veterans Administration Hospital and then as the Lenwood Division of the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Buildings 18, 19 and 20 were erected in 1912 as a Catholic School for young women. The property was later sold for use as the Lenwood Tourist Hotel and during World War I became part of Camp Hancock. After WW I, the facility was used as a 150-bed United States Government Public Health Hospital. In 1922 the Veterans Bureau took over the hospital and constructed several ward buildings and a dining hall. At one point during the late 40’s, the influx of World War II veterans resulted in the operation of over 1700 beds at the Lenwood Hospital and over 300 applicants were on a waiting list for admission. In the late 1940’s, VA acquired a 122 acre farm located three miles west of Lenwood Hospital. The farm, which was designed for patient involvement and the production of foodstuffs, was used for vegetable farming and for raising poultry and swine.
