Helen Hunt Health Center is housed in a beautifully renovated, spacious 3-story 1903 brick school house rich with local history.  A well-loved landmark that has been lovingly restored, the Helen Hunt building serves as a focal point for community health services just as it did for education over 100 years ago when it was a school serving local 4th and 5th grade students!
