Dr. Kline's Sanitarium, Anoka, Minnesota, 1906 Print
Nice view of Dr. Kline's Sanitarium in Anoka, Minnesota, from 1906.
The Kline Sanatorium was built in 1902 by Dr. James Kline and served hundreds of patients before it closed in 1935. Serving as a shelter for those left without homes in the wake of a 1939 tornado, the building again provided relief for people in the area. Later, it served as a hotel and then as a private residence and apartments. It remains one of the city of Anoka’s more iconic structures, clearly visible as you enter the city from across the Mississippi River.
