When I was researching the doors in the Ann Uccello neighborhood of Hartford, I stumbled onto an archive of Connecticut photos, maintained by the University of Connecticut Library system.
There I discovered a door that I’ve driven by for almost 35 years. The door is old and the door is beautiful. It’s the door to the administration building of the Albert J. Solnit Children’s Center – North Campus. According to Connecticut’s Department of Children & Families website:
“The Albert J. Solnit Children’s Center- North Campus, (formally the Connecticut Children’s Place), will serve as a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility effective December 1, 2013, providing treatment to adolescent males between the ages of 13 and 17 with complex psychiatric needs. The program is designed to be the bridge from hospital to home and community or as a diversionary placement to avoid the need for a hospital stay.”
