Cure Cottages of Saranac Lake

Cure Cottages Of Saranac Lake

Between 1873 and 1945, Saranac Lake, New York became a world renowned center for the treatment of tuberculosis, using a treatment that involved exposing patients to as much fresh air as possible under conditions of complete bed-rest. In the process, a specific building type, the "Cure Cottage" developed, built by local residents seeking to capitalize on the town's fame, by physicians, and often by the patients themselves. Many of these structures are extant, and their historic value has been recognized by listing on National Register of Historic Places.

Famous quotes containing the words lake, cottages and/or cure:

    Like a canoe route across the great lake on whose shore
    One is left trapped, grumbling not so much at bad luck as
    Because only this one side of experience is ever revealed.
    And that meant something.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Well, Mr. Thornton, you are a wonder. It looks the way all Irish cottages should and so seldom do. And only an American would have thought of emerald green.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    Then whisper by that holy spring,
    Where for her sake I would have died,
    Whilst those water-nymphs did bring
    Flowers to cure what she had tried;
    And of my faith and love did sing.
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
