Marker Text Hundreds of natural springs and artesian wells made Glen Rose a health resort at the turn of the century. George Paul Snyder (1878-1942), a native of California, opened a sanitarium here in 1915. He built this two-story structure in 1919 to accommodate his growing clientele. Snyder kept a small zoo which became a landmark for townspeople as well as guests. After Snyder's death, his family and associates operated the sanitarium until the 1970s. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1985
