Tuberculosis Cold Remedies: 1928

Tuberculosis Cold Remedies: 1928

Peoria Municipal Tuberculosis Sanatorium. This is one of the most serene places to walk in Central Illinois. It also holds the stories, souls and prayers of lives who were affected by a disease known variously as “the great white plague,” “consumption” or “wasting disease.”

This landscape near Forest Park Nature Center includes the beautiful brick building at 5823 North Forest Park Drive. Several other buildings and cottages were constructed among these acres of woods and housed people who suffered from tuberculosis beginning in 1919, when the main building for the Peoria Municipal Tuberculosis Sanatorium was opened.
