History

established in 1910 as the Belle Mead farm Colony and sanatorium by Dr. John Joseph Kindred, the facility we now know as Carrier Clinic was initially brought to life via the inspiration “to establish and maintain a colony for the care and treatment of sick persons, and particularly for the care and treatment of nervous and mental diseases and also all allied diseases.” even back then, Belle Mead in Montgomery township, new Jersey, was the ideal place for such a farm colony, with its fertile land and convenient access to new York and philadelphia where products could be easily transported via the philadelphia and reading railroad. indeed, the first object listed in the Certificate of incorporation was to operate as a commercial farm
