Primary tabs

The Iowa Sanitorium of the Seventh Day Adventists was dedicated on August 21, 1909, and located on 55 acres at the south end of, present day, 8th Street in Nevada, Iowa. The Sanitorium, which cost approximately $75,000 to build, was initiated by the Seventh Day Adventists in Des Moines who moved to Nevada because their Des Moines facility was “too noisy”. The building was destroyed by fire on January 30, 1943.
