Henry Sanatorium opened as a tuberculosis sanatorium on May 2, 1911 and was renamed Firland Sanatorium in 1912. It was located at 19303 Fremont Avenue North (near the present day border between Seattle and Shoreline), currently the site of CRISTA. It was built by the Anti-Tuberculosis League of King County with land and money donated by Horace C. Henry. In 1947 it was relocated to a former Naval hospital at 15th Avenue Northeast and 150th Street. It was permanently closed in 1973.
