1. Henryton Center Marker
Inscription.  Opened 1923 as Maryland's first tuberculosis sanatorium for African Americans. Treatment at the time sought to provide fresh air, good food, and sanitary living conditions; Henryton featured open porches, broad windows, and southern hillside exposure. In 1963 the sanatorium became Henryton State Hospital Center, serving developmentally disabled adults. Enrollment declined as therapy shifted to outpatient and home care. The facility closed in 1985.
