Genealogy and History - Glen Lake Sanatorium
Glen Lake Sanatorium was originally a tuberculosis treatment center serving Hennepin County in Minnesota. The facility was opened on 4 January 1916, with a capacity of 50 patients. The sanatorium had its own post office, and the mailing address was Glen Lake Sanatorium, Oak Terrace, Minnesota, and remained that until the surrounding area was incorporated into the City of Minnetonka. The sanatorium became a state-operated nursing home in 1961, but cared for tuberculosis patients until 1976. My mother, sister, and numerous friends were dedicated volunteers at "The San" when it was a nursing home. The buildings were demolished in 1992 with the exception of , which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
