The Women's Cottage at the Maine State Sanatorium in Hebron. The facility at Greenwood Mountain served patients with tuberculosis, who slept in the open air in cottages like this one.
The state bought what had been a private facility in 1915 and opened other TB sanatoria in Fairfield and Presque Isle. This facility was renamed the Western Maine Sanatorium.
