The Seaside Sanatorium in Connecticut was first opened in 1934 and was created for the care of children with tuberculosis. Please view this Seaside history page for details.
The architect Cass Gilbert designed the main buildings. He was also responsible for the US Supreme Court building, the Woolworth building in NYC, and many other well known museums.
All the property is currently owned by the state of Connecticut and in serious disrepair. Seaside is a collection of incredibly beautiful buildings sitting right on the water.
