Historical note

The Morgan Heights Sanatorium was built in 1911 as the first tuberculosis sanatorium in the Upper Peninsula. The building was located in West Marquette County, near Ishpeming, Michigan. The name of the sanatorium was later changed to the "Acocks Medical Facility." O'Dovero Properties bought Morgan Heights for $120,000 in 1995. The former Morgan Heights hospital building was torn down in 2002.
