Doctor and nurses quarters. 

The Seaside Sanatorium in Waterford, Connecticut opened in 1930 as a tuberculosis hospital for children. The location was chosen based on the thought that the fresh air of the Long Island Sound would help ail the suffering children. In 1958, the hospital began treating the elderly who were mentally handicapped. In the 1970's, there was evidence that those hospitalized at Seaside were being abused by the staff causing a higher death rate among the patients. Due to those allegations, the hospital closed in 1996.
