Seaside Sanatorium Maher Infirmary

Seaside Old Infirmary

The Maher Infirmary building at the old Seaside Sanatorium is one of the largest single buildings I have ever seen.  At some point a lighthouse was added on each end of the structure. I don’t know if they were ever operational,  but being right on the water front it does make sense, looks good too so it doesn’t matter.

The guard rails shown above run along the length of the second floor. Children with tuberculosis lived here and at the time part of the treatment was to line beds outside for open air sleeping.

In the center of the building a tall spire looks over the property. On top is an incredible weathervane.

Plans have been made to create a park on the property but until then the land and buildings stand abandoned. Except for photographers who visit daily.
