Inscription. The Women's Club Hospital Company, with community support, established a hospital here on December 26, 1915. It was named for Winnie A. Scott, a local teacher instrumental in its founding. The facility was the only Frankfort hospital serving African Americans until desegregation of King's Daughters Hospital in 1959.
