Jon Crispin's Notebook

Willard Tour 2015

Posted in Asylums, cemeterys, History, Mental Health by joncrispin on 25/03/2015

I am often asked about the annual tour of the Willard grounds, and I now have some tentative information about this year’s event.  It is a fundraiser for the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Children’s Center, which is on the grounds of the old asylum.  Here is a link to their Facebook page, where they will post details.  It is tentatively set for the 16th of May.  If you plan to attend, get there early as it is usually very crowded.

Additionally, the Willard Cemetery Memorial project is holding an event that same day in honor of Lawrence Mocha.  Here is a link to a Finger Lakes Times article that includes some details.

I hope to attend each event, and would be happy to see any of you who can make it.  Thanks to Mark for the tip about the Lawrence Mocha event.

The above picture is one I took in May of 1984 on my first visit to photograph inside Chapin House on the Willard grounds.
