I did find this.... Lela M. Hurst worked From 1946-1947, she at Tennessee's first state-owned tuberculosis (TB) hospital, named Learline Reaves Sanatorium, in Greeneville.

I googled & this popped up. Hope it is of some help to you!

I did know that it was opened by W.H. Reaves in 1941. He gave a 5 acre tract of land to greeneville then built the building, and gave equipment and erected a road to it. It was expected to be state ran. The building itself is no longer for tuberculosis obviously but it still exsists. I was wondering if anyone knew where it was. It was apparently near cedar creek.

The house is on the left at the top of the hill that goes to Cedar Creek Learning Center. Collins family owns it. I think they may still have some relatives living there. They used to own the store at the bottom of the hill next to Renner's

Yes. The Moore Family that is asking, it is their family that had this when it was the Reaves Sanatorium. This family is asking if anyone knew where it was located. Thanks
