Who Was Mary Ann Morse?
The town of Natick was actually home to two unrelated women named Mary Ann Morse. The first Mary Ann Morse left her whole estate to establish a library. The Morse Institute Library, which is just around the corner from our building, is named in her honor.
The other Mary Ann Morse is the woman for whom our facility is named. She was born Mary Ann Stone, and she married a local businessman and blacksmith, Leonard Morse. The couple didn’t have any children. At the time of her death in 1891, Mary Ann left her entire estate (Mr. Morse had died in 1888) to the town for the purpose of establishing a hospital. Over a century later, the Mary Ann Morse Healthcare Center was dedicated in Mrs. Morse’s honor.
