Maher Building at Seaside — Waterford, Connecticut

After a particularly unpleasant interaction with a security guard here in the Summer, I thought that I would never return to Seaside. All this changed when it was announced that Seaside would become the first Connecticut State Park in more than 50 years, but the building’s future was “uncertain”. The Stephen P. Maher Building, the original hospital at the sanatorium was built in the Tudor Revival style in the mid 1930s and designed by Architect Cass Gilbert. This view was shot from the seawall on Long Island Sound looking up at the grand structure which formerly housed patients.

  1. Amazes me at the way they over act when they see people nearby places like this. What in the world did they think an 80 year old man and yourself could possible do at such a place? So glad you did get the approval to get on sight and do what you do! Makes me happy to see other places that a little far out of my reach. This is a stunning shot! Can’t wait to see more!

  2. Funny enough, my daughter and I were caught on Pennhurst property earlier in the year by the organic mulch company who leases some of the grounds. We were threatened with arrest by the men even though we did not enter any buildings or cause damage. Simply taking photographs. Never in a million years did I think I would have been working there!

  3. Huh, they are a law onto themselves – when did taking pictures of the exterior become so threatening and with an elderly man taboot!

    Great shot Robert .
