I couldn't agree more. Such a short sighted view of this amazing property. We too would have like to retired there. I have walked around there and am also deeply saddened by the once beautiful buildings, grouped in a U shape at the top of the hill, that are deteriorating beyond repair. I can envision them still, renovated into condos in their former grandeur. But maybe it's just the nostalgia from growing older and appreciating the beauty and seeing the potential.

Is the original property still up?

sofia, not sure what you mean by "up." Probably you're referring to the days of the Fairview Training Center.

Many of the original buildings are still there. Some have been torn down, I believe. Hopefully some of the most attractive and historically important buildings can be refurbished for other uses.
