This week in Placer County history

DeWitt Flag

On Feb. 27, 1944, the U.S. Army’s DeWitt General Hospital opened in North Auburn with the U.S. flag raised on the massive 50-foot flagpole in front of the administration building. 

By the opening ceremony, DeWitt had already received its first two patients. When the hospital opened, it had a 1,727-bed capacity. During this time, a population of over 3,000 individuals lived on the site. This included U.S. Army officers, military medical personnel and enlisted servicemen and women, including of the Women's Army Corps. The DeWitt General Hospital officially closed Dec. 31, 1945. In 1946, it became the DeWitt State Mental Hospital (and is now the site of the Placer County Government Center campus).

To learn more about the history of the DeWitt General Hospital, please visit the DeWitt History Museum at 2985 Richardson Drive in North Auburn any Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m., admission free! Learn more
