The Fresh Air Baby Camp in Riverside Park has been there since the early 1920s, sitting empty for the past ten years. 

At that time, health care professionals believed fresh air was the best way to take care of at-risk infants.

"In 1920, Wesley Hospital was allowed to build a Fresh Air Baby Camp, which was a tent camp," said Lea McCloud, Friends of the Historic Fresh Air Baby Camp development coordinator.

After only six months of use, the tent camp burned.

Women in the community decided to raise money to build a new home for the the Fresh Air Baby Camp.
