The Dayton VAMC was recently named a National Historic Landmark for the historical significance it possesses. Formerly known as the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers (NHDVS), today's Dayton VAMC was created by congressional legislation signed by President Abraham Lincoln on March 3, 1865. Since its opening in 1867, the Dayton VAMC has been a focal point for innovation in Veterans care.
