Thank you for posting these photographs! My great-grandmother was a patient at Craig House from the late 1920s to the late 1930s. Her story, what little I know if it, is sad and mysterious. It’s a gift to be able to see a place that she lived, even if it’s somewhere she would have rather not been.


Wow. An unfortunate place to be, but pretty interesting that she would have been there at the same time as Zelda Fitzgerald.
