I am curious if anyone has any ties, professional or personal to the Rome State School in Rome, NY, for the mentally retarded, from the 1950s to early 1070s. I think that now it is a home for the deaf, but I may be incorrect. One of my patients in LTC was a medical student there in the 1930s!!
My brothers lived there from about 1958 to 1972. They are now in upstate NY in different group homes, in their late 50s. I am trying to find info on the internet and am not getting much.
If anyone lives in Oneida County, NY and would email me the phone # for the Historical Society, I would appreciate it. So far, I haven't found it.
Hi Psalm: Ran across your post about the Rome State School by accident today. The two of us worked there in the Recreation and Physical Therapy departments from 1965 until the place closed around 1990 and might be able to give you some historical information or whatever. PM me if you're interested. Regards.
