The “beautiful old Colonial mansion” was undoubtedly the Schermerhorn’s, as they formerly owned the land, and the mansion was once summer home of Governor George Clinton.

This picture, and the two on following page, were sent to the CSS Department of Public Interest July 4, 1950, by Miss Helen Fuller, Director, Ward Manor, with a note saying, “One of our most beloved family members, Evelina M. Haughwout, died recently. She had been a worker for Junior Sea Breeze Hospital for AICP back in 1907 and among her papers I found this story about it (filed Archives History file, Seabreeze) and these pictures. I thought they might have some use in our archives some day …” Junior Sea Breeze was “discontinued” Sept. 30, 1911. See AICP 69th Annual Report, 1911-12, pp. 15-16.
