Keep Seaside State Park, even if it means losing historic buildings

It is time for Senator Paul Formica, R-East Lyme, to forget about developing the former Seaside Sanatorium ("For some, Seaside State Park not yet a lost battle," June 6). If the two Cass Gilbert buildings, the Stephen J. Maher infirmary, and the nurses' residence cannot be saved, then so be it. As Helen Post Curry, the great-granddaughter of architect Gilbert pointed out in the article, there are ways to preserve the places the buildings occupied.

In the end, it's the land that must be saved. Keep Seaside a state park. It belongs to the people.
