     Recently the Chicago Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitorium District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  This was a 160 acre campus containing 12 buildings.  It was located on the far northwest side of Chicago.  For 60 years, it functioned as a residential treatment center for tuberculosis patients.

     The property is now known as North Park Village.  This now features senior housing, Chicago Park District Gymnastic Center, and a nature center with 46 acres of land.
