A few weeks ago, I visited the abandoned house in Southold, Long Island. This is the house where Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan supposedly spent their last summer together in 1936, just before Ms. Sullivan died. The house is in great disrepair. Although there were people who were trying to save the house, I saw in Newsday last week that the town council has voted to raze the cottage sometime in the near future. My daughter and I visited last weekend for our (likely) final look at this cottage. This time we went around back, where you can really see why there’s no hope of saving it.
