Description

The assembly room and parlor in the Chamberlin Administration Building at the Maine State Sanatorium in Hebron.

The facility, opened in 1904, served persons with pulmonary diseases -- mostly tuberculosis. It was privately funded and operated until 1915 when the state took it over.

The image was made for a promotional pamphlet about the sanatorium. The text near this image notes that the building "is nearly as fire-proof as it could be made, with brick and concrete, adamant plaster, and expanding metal lathing."
