City Directories and History: The medical community in Spartanburg was active in both creating private hospitals such as the Mary Black Institute and City Hospitals, which often resembles large homes. It was not until well into the early 20th century that cities and towns began constructing “public hospitals” to take care of all citizens, even though most had a “Colored” ward as well as a non-paying ward for local citizens who were indigent.
