The Hot Lake Story, an illustrated history from pre-discovery to 1974, 2nd Ed.; by Richard Roth; viii+462 pp., Hardcover; 8.5x11; Indexed; Published: 2008; Item # HQP006
This is a comprehensive history of the Hot Lake Sanatorium/Hospital located between La Grande and Union Oregon. Established in 1874 by Samuel Neuhard this ”Place of Healing” operated for many years under the direction of Dr. W.T. Phy. With the advent of antibiotics the hospital fell into disuse and was used for a nursing home, hotel, and other things. A fascinating story of pioneers with their dreams, and where they went with them in eastern Oregon.
