Letchworth Village — Thiells,  New York

“The purpose of an institution of this nature is four-fold. First, it is a home where the feeble-minded and epileptic of all ages may be given the pleasures and comforts of the ordinary home. To this end our day rooms will be provided with games, colored pictures, flowers, music, etc”. — Charles S. Little, M.D., Superintendent Letchworth Village, March 2, 1912
