Public Health Service Laboratory – Hamilton MT

Description

The federal government under F.D.R. constructed a large new health research complex in Hamilton, Montana, with construction completed in 1940. The laboratory had originally been housed in a “two-story empty school building.”

NIH: “After its successful work with spotted fever the Rocky Mountain Laboratory expanded its facilities and programs … to work on other insect-borne diseases, such as yellow fever and the spirochetal relapsing fevers.”

Now known as “Rocky Mountain Laboratories,” the facility is still in use.
