New Jersey State Tuberculosis Sanatorium, Sanatorium Road, 1 mile east of intersection of Main Street & Sanitorium Road, Glen Gardner, Hunterdon County, NJ
Significance: The New Jersey State Sanatorium is an excellent example of a typical state sanatorium because it contains all of the textbook design features considered essential by experts of the day. Thomas Spees Carrington published Tuberculosis Hospital and Sanatorium Construction in 1911. This book was considered the definitive source of sanatorium construction through the 1920s. The sanatorium contains nearly all of the features Carrington presents as essential. The New Jersey State Sanatorium is significant at the local, state, and national levels as a nearly intact example of the physical environment in which the tuberculosis patients resided for the duration of their treatment.
