Blythewood Sanitarium opened as a private institution for the mentally disturbed in 1905 in Stamford, Connecticut. Established by Boss Tweed for wealthy patients as an escape from New York City, the facility was built on fifty acres of wooded land, split down the middle by a stream which lead to a nearby pond. At its peak, Blythewood had eight main buildings, eight cottages, a chapel, an occupational therapy building, and a small golf course.

Blythewood was not like the three other sanitariums of Greenwich (Brooklea Farm and Crest View). It was exclusive - catering to many wealthy socialites and costing nearly $200 a week in 1924. <ref>Fleming, E. J. "The Life and Famous Death of MGM Director and Husband of Harlow."
