The OES visited Grant Hospital's Baldwin Tower on May 9, 2004. Located on Town Street in downtown Columbus, Baldwin Tower had been a significant part of the city's skyline for 36 years. The sixteen-story tower was constructed in 1968 as an addition to Grant Hospital, which was founded over 100 years ago. Over the years, Baldwin Tower became obsolete to the medical needs of today's society. Instead of renovating the tower, the decision was made to bring the tower down to make way for a brand new facility. On May 9, 2004, Baldwin Tower was demolished with a powerful implosion. Below are photos of the tower before its destruction and a video of the implosion.
