Obwebetuck Hotel / Houston InstitutePic of the Week - August 16, 2012 The Obwebetuck Hotel opened in either 1888 or 1889. It was popular as a summer resort and also used for such gatherings as the June, 1889 First Annual (Windham?) High School Alumni Banquet. By December, 1892, the Obwebetuck Hotel had been leased by “The New England Housian Narcotic Cure Company”. Dr. W.D. Waller of Columbia was appointed as house physician. By 1897 it was known as Dr Rose’s Sanitarium. On April 4, 1907 a devastating fire completely destroyed what by then was called Grand View Sanitarium. 16 inmates escaped the fire.
