This imposing Victorian structure, formerly on the north corner of Flagg and Main Streets in the South Village, was built and used as a dormitory for South Lancaster Academy from 1895 to 1899 and then as a sanitarium from 1899 to 1902. Shortly thereafter, Col. John E. Thayer bought the property, the sanitarium was relocated, and the Thayer Bird Museum was built on the site. Title from item or accompanying materials.
