Many people who have lived in the Graduate Hospital for awhile have probably walked by this building and wondered, "what's up with this place?" This building is notable because of its enormous size, its unexpectedly poor condition given its location, and the word "Weaver" carved in the moulding above the front door. From what we understand, the building was once a funeral home, but hasn't been used for that purpose for many years. Currently, we hear it's used mostly for storage.
