At The Grand Patrician Resort in Milton, West Virginia, history is in the remaking.

The resort, first the site of Morris Memorial Hospital, began as a polio rehabilitative hospital for children under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936. With the eradication of polio, the hospital transitioned into a nursing home until it closed in 2009. In October 2017, the Hoops family purchased the vacant facility and its surrounding property.
