This is a partial/incomplete page as I have not yet explored Seaside State Park.
Visitors are allowed to walk around the property and the seawall, but the buildings are fenced in and off limits.
Established as a Connecticut’s 108th state park in 2014.
The site of a former sanatorium – built in 1934 by renowned architect Cass Gilbert. It was a hospital from children with tuberculosis until it was abandoned in 1996. The state was been working on a plan to save the buildings and possibly turn it into a resort since 2015. As of July 2019 no progress has been made.
