General Hospital

When they tore down the old General Hospital, they spared this dome. Now, there’s a little park and a time capsule buried underneath it. The four little things, sticking up in the middle, is the spire of the Stone Church.

Since this is pure copper, it would have turned green pretty rapidly. The people of Saint John didn’t like that, so it’s treated with something that makes it look this shiny all the time! When we first moved here, I was intrigued … didn’t know what it was.
