Middletown, New York, USA

For Calbraith Perry Rodgers, Sept. 18, 1911 had its downs and ups... On his way to what turned out to be America’s first cross-country flight, he smacked his Vin Fiz into a chicken coop in Middletown. Residents pitched in to repair the craft and Rodgers continued his history-making trip.

In April 1874, the first homeopathic mental hospital in the world opened in Middletown. Patient care at the asylum was considered revolutionary because of the founder’s belief that insanity was a treatable disease that responded to gentle, humane care.

In 1887, Dr. Julia E. Bradner, Middletown’s first female physician, started a home for elderly women.
