Description

Architects John Calvin Stevens and John Howard Stevens drew plans for the temporary headquarters for the Maine State Sanatorium in Hebron.

The facility for treatment of tuberculosis opened in 1904. Dr. Estes Nichols, medical superintendent, helped design the buildings.

The temporary headquarters had a dining room, kitchen, sleeping pavilions, and an assembly room.

The state took over operation of the facility in 1915 and renamed it the Western Maine Sanatorium.
