A. Friederich & Sons was the lead contractor for the construction of this beautiful sanatorium and health resort. The grounds included all the amenities of a first class resort hotel including an elegant dining hall, a luxurious drawing room, sunbathing rooms, a rooftop terrace, an inground swimming pool and tennis courts. Sadly, after years of total neglect, this grand old building is now dilapidated, overgrown and crumbling. It has become a favorite destination for urban explorers.
