Thank you for the information. I may pursue it to see if there is anything
I can do to get information from them. I have found some information on the
hospital, and in fact, last night found a site that has several pictures of
various buildings at the hospital. I also found it is once again
vacant--apparently the juvenile department that was using it had some
problems and their program didn't work out. Before it was Victor Cullen it
was the Maryland State TB Sanatorium. On this website I found it is
pictures and postcards, and there is even one of Victor Cullen himself, who
had been a medical examiner in Maryland. If you put Blue Ridge Summit
Postcard Collection in your web browser you should be able to find it.
Again thanks for the information.

I was looking for info on Sabillasville last summer, and asked the
Frederick county Historical Society, but they said they didn't have the
Then I had an email exchange with the Frederick county public library
about Sabillasville. Here's what they replied:
Dear Ms. Hatten:
I have been able to speak with the historian I mentioned in my previous
e-mail. It is her understanding that the records for the sanatorium are
housed at the Maryland Health Department and that they are closed. I
would recommend contacting the Department to confirm that information,
their webpage may help direct you www.dhmh.state.md.us/html/contactinfo.htm.
They do not have an archivist on staff, as far as I know. I would
recommend either calling the director's office or the librarian. If the
records are closed, and I believe that they would be, ask them how long
they will be closed and what does one need to do to gain access. These
records may also be covered under the new medical privacy act, which
should add to the potential confusion.
Then I wrote to the MD Health Dept and they replied that they did not
retain the records.
I didn't pursue it any further, but would be interested in any
information anyone else may have gathered about that facility.
