The Cincinnati Sanitarium
was located in the College Hill neighborhood. Three doctors established the Sanitarium because they saw a need for a private care psychiatric facility. The 32-acre property was purchased from the Ohio Female College in 1873. Patients were treated for mental illness as well as alcohol and opium addictions. In addition to the main hospital, there were four two-story cottages, an amusement hall with a billiard hall in the basement, a flower conservatory, several physical plant buildings, an ice house and even a station for the Cincinnati Northwestern railroad.
