This week's Tuberculosis Thursday feature is the Sageman Cottage. The cottage, located at what is now 63 Park Avenue, has many stories to tell in its history! It is the oldest house in the Cottage Row district, and at one point it was one of seven cottages with a contract with the Veterans Administration to care for tubercular soldiers.
Bela Bartok and his wife Dita stayed on the property in 1943, and it also played host to at least one Norwegian sailor, Alfred Larsen.
