This website is the work of an amateur photographer with a great passion for historic structures. My name is Phil, I have had an interest in history and architecture since I was very little. This website is my attempt at documenting one of the oldest sanatorium hospitals in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. All contemporary photographs are my original work and can not be reproduced elsewhere without permission. Most of the historical photos are also my work, produced from the original photos at the PA State Archives and other locations. This website is not in any way affiliated with the South Mountain Restoration Center. The accuracy of the information displayed on the site is not guaranteed, the website is constantly updated to reflect the most accurate information possible. Do not contact us about directions to the hospital or the names of those to contact to gain permission to visit the hospital. Thanks, and enjoy the site. For any further information please Email Me.


A Special thanks to the following people for helping to make this website possible...
