After publishing my interview last week with one of the founders of the “Save Waverly Hills” group, who alleged inappropriate if not illegal behavior on the part of members of the Waverly Hills Historic Society, I reached out to the latter—again—to see if they’d be interested in responding. They did reply this time—by sending me a link to the very website I’d used to contact them.
I understand that, if you have a lot to say about a subject, it can get tiring and become time-consuming to write it down (or type it up) over and over. But the lack of any response other than a link chaffed me. This doesn’t prove that the accusations made against them are true or that their allegations are false. But it does seem unprofessional and I took it as rude. They may be in the right, but they’ve earned themselves no friends over here.
It will be up to a court-of-law to determine where the truth of all this mess lies. And as I have stated, my only concern is that the building and grounds of Waverly Hills Sanatorium are preserved and properly cared for, with the public allowed continued access to them. I don’t know any of the principals involved in the legal wrangling and don’t have a personal stake in the fight. Except that now I kinda don’t like the WHHS. And that’s their fault.
