Inscription.  This is the original building erected by Harry Crenshaw in 1926 and opened as a hotel and apartments in April of that year.

On February 2, 1928, the hotel became the Melbourne Hospital, operated by Dr. and Mrs. I.M. Hay who came here from St. Augustine.

The building served as the area's hospital for nine years, then reverted back to the Crenshaw Hotel and apartments.

The building was completely restored and reopened as a hotel and apartments in May, 1980, by W. C Hersom.
