Description

The Sanitarium at Battle Creek was founded in 1866 on principles advocated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It evolved into an upper-class spa, hospital, and hydrotherapy institution closely associated with nutritionist John Harvey Kellogg, a leader in progressive health reform who endorsed a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet that included dairy products and egg dishes. Kellogg is best known for the invention of the first dry flaked breakfast cereal which transformed the typical American breakfast.
