A Theatre of Lost Souls

On the site where the Winnebago Fairgrounds now stands, a Sanatorium stood, built in 1915, as a place to treat those with Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis which is highly contagious, is still a very serious disease today, but in the early part of the 20th Century it was fatal 70 - 75 % of the time. So serious was the disease, that those diagnosed were removed from society and committed to the Sanatorium with two choices, get better or die. The Sanatorium housed all ages from infants to the elderly. Many of them never saw their loved ones again and died and were buried in the cemetery on the grounds. The only evidence that they existed, a small plaque with a number on it to identify their resting place.
