On This Date in Minnesota History: January 4
January 4, 1916 – “Glen Lake Sanatorium, a tuberculosis treatment center serving
Hennepin County in Minnesota, opened on [this date], with a capacity of 50
patients. In 1909, the Minnesota State Legislature had passed a bill
authorizing the appointment of county sanatorium boards and appropriating money
for the construction of county sanatoriums. Glen Lake Sanatorium was the fifth
of fourteen county sanatoria that opened in Minnesota between 1912 and 1918.
The sanatorium had its own post office, and the mailing address was Glen Lake
Sanatorium, Oak Terrace, Minnesota, until the surrounding area was incorporated
into the City of Minnetonka.”
