Wide Horizons Sanitarium

Address: 8900 W. 38th Ave. Wheat Ridge, CO 80033

The name is appropriate to the location and the philosophy of the institution as a Christian Science Sanitarium. What is now the tea room was originally the Yousee House, built in the early 1900s. This was a private residence until in 1947 when Mountain States Home, Inc. purchased the 10-acre property. They remodeled the buildings and proceeded with plans to accommodate 24 guests, custodial staff and graduate Christian Science nurses. In 1947, there were two other similar institutions, one in Boston, the other in San Francisco. In 1989, the buildings were replaced by new buildings.
