Many months ago, Mr. Craig Williams, Curator of History at the New York State Museum at Albany, sent me copies of two Willard State Hospital Maps from 1917: Willard West and East. I finally had a chance to work on them. As you can see, the complex was quite large, about 1,000 acres. The Branch (Grand View – Old State Agricultural College) is on the Willard East Map located at the bottom of the page. Click on the maps to enlarge. Willard Map Index
I cropped the map so that you would be able to see the layout of each building. Chapin House is the Main Building. As far as I can tell, Willard was NOT a Kirkbride Building. The Maples was one of the cottages (detached buildings or blocks), that was built differently than the other three cottages.
Thank you so much for the map! I appreciate all the work — time and effort and love you put into this project. Thank you for sharing!
Thank you, Barbara.
Great read thannkyou
