Inscription.  This three-story building housed 144 male patients. Maybury's monthly magazine, The Fluoroscope, had its offices here. Radio programs originated in this building, and were transmitted by earphones to patients throughout Maybury Sanatorium.

The idea of a radio broadcast system originated in 1932. Patients installed the wiring to each building and the hookup was able to carry auditorium programs, outdoor concerts, radio programs and sanatorium announcements to the room of every patient.

In later years, when sanatorium operations were consolidated, the Annex was converted to the Children's Unit. The last young patients in this building were treated due to a 1966 tuberculosis outbreak at a nursery school.

There isn't much left of it these days, aside from a couple scraps of rubble here and there in the woods. The beautiful wooded hills have been preserved for public recreation however, and it may be fondly remembered by most Metro-Detroiters as the one and only place that they ever rode a horse.
