Historical note Fayette County, Kentucky, opened the Blue Grass Sanatorium, a treatment center for tuberculosis, in 1917. Leo Marks donated $125,000 to the county to construct and equip new facilities for the hospital in 1924. The Sanatorium was renamed in honor of his father, Julius. The opening of five state tuberculosis hospitals in 1948 caused the number of patients at Julius Marks to decline. The sanatorium's patients eventually transferred to the state hospitals and Julius Marks became a home for the elderly and indigent of Fayette County.
