Ninette Sanatorium

Ninette Sanatorium

Ninette, Manitoba (built 1910). I hadn’t heard of the Ninette Sanatorium until recently, when I listened to the John K. Samson song Letter In Icelandic From The Ninette San. The gorgeous, haunting song inspired me to check out the old grounds of the sanatorium when I was visiting the nearby cottage community of Pelican Lake a few weeks ago.

Samson’s song does a far better job of expressing the beauty and melancholy of this place than these photos do; check it out if you haven’t heard it yet.
