Local Interest - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Local Interest
Interesting series on the former life of the North Park Nature Center as the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium. Hm, here's an idea, does anybody want to meet up to ramble around the grounds some time before winter's icy clutches descend upon the area...? Can't promise we'd see any stinky deer, but you never know...

I've always wanted to wander around there :) Yes, I did know it used to be a Sanitarium, I think Carole and I dug that up back when we were researching the history of the grounds of NEIU. It was really kind of interesting stuff we unearthed!

Hmm, maybe we should do a recon to see if it would work for a shoot...

Sounds like we have some interest, then, watch this space for a poll for dates...

If it's at a time we can make it, yes, definitely!

We probably have four more weeks of good-to-too hot weather to work with, and then maybe another four that'd be touch-and-go for scheduling... I shall Ponder options for a poll.

Oh, that whole area is rife with history. It was a TB Sanitarium for most of the time the Parental School was fully active.

Count me in.
