The White Haven Sanitorium was built in 1901 in Luzerne County, PA, in the town of White Haven. Was originally a place for Tuberculosis patients. In the early 1900,s the air of the Pocono Mountains was deemed to be a curative for lung conditions like tuberculosis. The cool and clean air helped many people recover, while sleeping in tents, Jefferson Medical College took over the sanatorium in 1946 and ran it until 1956. it was then sold to the state of PA to use for care of the mentally retarded, being renamed as Pennhurst Annex. (The original Pennhurst was in Spring City, Montgomery County PA) In the 1960s, the named was changed to the White Haven State School.
