|Summary:||This photo shows the Sanitorium and two others buildings on that site. The boat's name is "The Star." Here is an excellent view of these buildings which are no longer standing and an area of the river which is no longer cleared. The exact location of this building is unknown, but it is believed to have been on the south shore, west of the current boat ramp and Bamboo Landing. The quality of construction leads some to believe that these buildings were constructed after 1900 and possibly even later (c. 1910). It is rumored that the materials from the Sanitorium were used to build the Boomer house on the north side of the river.|
