Shenandoah Memorial Hospital is selling Vanderbilt Hall bricks.

 The hall, which was recently demolished, was built in 1954 as a dormitory for nurses, according to Deborah Inaba, exercise physiologist with Shenandoah Memorial Hospital and the hospital’s United Way representative.

“Many people either lived there, participated in classes or worked there as part of Woodstock Internal Medicine,” she said. “Vanderbilt Hall holds many memories for many in our area.”

She said the hospital was able to reclaim, clean and place a commemorative seal on 200 bricks from the building. They are being sold for $10 each to benefit the United Way 2016 campaign. Inaba said over 80 bricks have been sold so far.
