The Three Boy's Cottages
Today these buildings are being used for various mental health programs for youth up to 21 years of age with emotional or behavioral special needs.
Just after passing the pool, we come to the last section of the long corridor taking us to the boy cottages.
First is the Junior Boy's Cottage, here looking at dorm one. The Intermediate Boy's Cottage is the next building we see through the corridor windows.
The large blacktop outside the Junior Boy's Cottage remains. That is the Intermediate Cottage beyond the cars and behind that is the Seniors. What is that poking out to the right of the Senior Cottage? We'll hold that story till a few pages later.
Look at that! They build a new building between the second and third dormitory of the Junior Boy's Cottage. Looking in the windows of dorm four we can see straight through to dorm one. They made it into one giant room. I almost missed something else when shooting this picture. Look to the extreme left. They installed a garage right in place of the fifth and sixth bed in the fourth dorm! Was one of these your bed? Well a truck or something parks there now.
Here's another thing I spotted when preparing these photos for this story.
Isn't that nice, they built a planter around a flag pole just outside the Intermediate Boy's Cottage.
Wait just one minute... Not quite... Remember earlier while we were at the pool I mentioned those circular wading pools with the sprinklers? Look Familiar? Look to the left of the pool. There is the square concrete chamber in the ground for the circulating pump.
We see that a swing set and fence was added just after the intermediate Boy's Cottage as we come to the Senior Boy's Cottage, the next building on our tour.
