Dayhoff: Historical markers dedicated for the Henryton Nursing School, Tuberculosis Sanatorium


Dayhoff: Historical markers dedicated for the Henryton
Nursing School, Tuberculosis Sanatorium

By Kevin Dayhoff May 22, 2016


About 50 folks huddled along the shoulder of Henryton Road
at the entrance of the historic Henryton State Hospital complex May 14 to
dedicate two roadside historic markers. The sun shined brightly on the
ceremonies in a rare reprieve in the recent streak of endless days of rainfall.

No, the celebrants were not there to dedicate an ark, but it
nearly took an act of God to get the state of Maryland to tacitly acknowledge
the very existence of the historic segregated facility for the treatment of
African Americans suffering from tuberculosis and the segregated nursing school
that was once located there — far out of sight of urban Baltimore and the seat
of state government in Annapolis.

Noted civil rights leader John Lewis Jr., the 2nd vice
president of the Carroll County NAACP, was the master of ceremonies. Other
community leaders, such as Pam Zappardino, Charles Collyer, Virginia and
Charles Harrison, Jean Lewis, Del. Susan Krebs R-District 5, the Rev. Douglas
Sands and Maryland NAACP president Gerald G. Stansbury were on hand to share in
the ceremonies.


This writer began looking into the history of the hospital
in the early 1970s when it caught my attention during an assignment to research
the history of hospitals in Carroll County for a project for what was
then-Carroll County General Hospital.

Over the years, researching the history of hospital has
difficult. What little information on the hospital that was found was often
conflicting, inconsistent, and only appeared in anecdotal accounts; often
without a comprehensive context. Many historians contacted in the 1970s were
barely aware of the facility.
