Mike, Bob and I were in Mattawa on Friday afternoon to take some photos of the Mattawa Hospital, photo shown (check out the link to Mike deMoree photos for additional Mattawa Hospital photos). This is now an abandoned building as the town recently built a new hospital. The old one was used as recently as 6 months ago and is in great dis-repair. Some folks would like to see the old building preserved as a heritage site; however, upon closer inspection, photos to follow later, it is pretty obvious there is not much to preserve. It is pretty apparent it will be knocked down, and I bet a condo will re-surface in its "wake," that will have a fabulous view overlooking the junction of the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers and the Quebec highlands.
