The Seaside Center is nationally significant as the first institution designed for heliotropic treatment of children suffering from tuberculosis. Its buildings "comprise an exceptional collection of fully realized and generally well-preserved Tudor Revival-style institutional architecture", further distinguished by association with Cass Gilbert.
After a detour from another place in CT, we made our way to our back-up plan, the Seaside Center.
Nothing crazy, just some walking, and relaxing. We were a little bummed that we woke up
at five a.m. and ended up at Seaside, sigh.
