In 1922, Hortense Kahn purchased a home (pictured here) where she founded Happy Hills Convalescent Home for sick children. In 1930, the hospital relocated to its current location on West Rogers Avenue and was later renamed Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. Image courtesy of Baltimore Heritage.

There’s an abundance of wonderful videos created in and about Baltimore, but many don’t garner the attention they deserve. Starting today, Baltimore Fishbowl will share a weekly video that catches our eye.

This week, we’re showcasing Baltimore Heritage’s “Five Minute Histories” video from last month about Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. As Baltimore Heritage Executive Director Johns Hopkins will tell you, the hospital has a fascinating history, starting with Hortense Kahn’s founding of the Happy Hills Convalescent Home.

(You can also read more about Happy Hills and the pediatric hospital’s history in a story by Baltimore Fishbowl here.)
