Elder Street Artist Lofts

The Elder Street Artists Lofts are located at the old Jefferson Davis Hospital. Renovation on the building was completed in 2005 and is currently is a home and studio to many painters, musicians, jewelers, and sculptors. The Jefferson Davis Hospital was built in 1859 near the railroad tracks. The     hospital was located next to the railroad so soldiers could be quickly off loaded and placed under medical care only yards away from the track.           Burials were made outside the Jefferson Davis Hospital. In 1924 the hospital was named after Jefferson Davis and a monument was placed over their grave sites. Parking lots for impounded and demolished vehicles for the Houston Police and Houston Fire Depts and other buildings are now located      over the Civil War-era hospital. The hospital and burial area is well known to be haunted.
