Westmount Sanitarium finds a home

The Warren County Board of Supervisors' committee responsible for inspecting sites for the proposed county hospital went to North Creek Aug. 30, 1910 where they looked over the Somerville and Bibby properties. From there they went to Loon Lake to inspect the property of Dr. Fred E. Aldrich of Chestertown and hence to the Warren County Home in Warrensburgh where they looked over a lot owned by the county on the Bolton side of the river. The trip was made in the automobile of George F. Boyle, Chairman of the Glens Falls Committee for the Prevention of Tuberculosis.

The group also inspected the Murray property on Miller Hill, Queensbury, which contains but eight acres. They all felt, however, that the Codner farm on French Mountain, about 120 acres, is an ideal place for the erection of a tuberculosis hospital as it is situated on the state road and trolley line. It is within the 15-cent fare limit from Glens Falls, 10 cents from Lake George, 25 cents from Warrensburgh and is the center of the population of Warren County.

The loss of the building was $600 and the insurance was $400.
