Baker Hospital T-Shirt

Swindler! Charlatan! Quack! The notorious Norman Baker has been called many things over the years, due to his operation of the phony “Baker Hospital” cancer clinic in the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa from 1937 to 1940. In addition to his leanings as a conman, he also had a curious obsession with the light purple color called lavender. In fact, he painted much of the hotel shades of purple, and he often wore a white suit with lavender tie and purple suspenders. He even drove a lavender Cord convertible automobile!

I’m sure he would have approved of the museum’s new lavender Baker Hospital t-shirts, based on an original Baker advertisement that asked, “Is your neighbor sick? Tell them of us!” Only available from the Eureka Springs Historical Museum gift shop, where the past springs to life!
