This was originally a tuberculosis sanitarium.
New Deal workers constructed a: New kitchen and dining building, ward buildings (2), children’s building, doctors’ and nurses’ residences, improved sewage system, new water tank and incinerator.
The sanitarium was purchased by the MROSD in 1983, however, and “two years later all the hospital buildings were torn down and the site is now being reclaimed by nature.”
In the 1940s, additional buildings were added to the campus with the help of New Deal funding, increasing the capacity to 260 beds.
