The main building at LaSalette had several names and functions, Solomon Sanitarium, Attleboro Springs and LaSalette. A magnificent building no matter the name. Sadly in 1999 careless smoking by one of the residents resulted in the total loss of the structure and his own life. I don’t know what it was about that building that pleased me so much. I never set foot inside it nor know anyone connected to it. It was just absolutely beautiful to me.

The photos of the fire in progress were emailed to me by someone at the Sun Chronicle for inclusion in the original website. My apologies for not having documented the generosity.

I drove by a few days later….
