Not sure about Wurtsboro, but Sullivan county and the Liberty area in particular was once a haven for patients with TB. Loomis Sanitorium opened in 1896. It was severely damaged by fire in 1899. It finally closed in 1943. I got this info from "Retrospect--An Anecdotal History of Sullivan County, NY".
