During a time, this property became a hospital for the French Navy. It remained so until the withdrawal of the French in 1876, when peace was reestablished in the country. Free of foreign intervention, it was agreed to put the building back into service and Governor Francisco Hernandez y Hernandez arranged to support it as the Zamora Hospital. One of the decrees related to the orphanage was that any unclaimed youth here would bear the last name of Zamora, in order to perpetuate the memory of the illustrious founder.
During the celebration of the 450 years since the founding of Villa Rica de la Veracruz, it was decided that the building was to be renamed in order to serve as the headquarters of the Museum of the City of Veracruz.
