We went to take the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory tour, mainly just to see if the place owns up at all to its long and infamous eugenics history. The short answer is no, it wasn’t mentioned in any way whatsoever throughout the tour, and the history of the buildings themselves was spotty and hand-picked to carefully avoid mentioning anything that would even hint at eugenics or the fact that the lab was essentially considered the home of eugenics in America for the first half of the 20th century.
When we inquired about where the Eugenics Record Office was located, we weren’t given an answer either. We were told we could check with the Carnegie Institute library on campus which of course wasn’t open. There’s nothing online about an address for this place and all the information about it is vague as to where it is actually at. This resulted in us driving around for over an hour trying to find the place based on 100-year-old photographs.
Well… we did finally find it tucked away in the woods, almost completely hidden from view of the main road by trees, in a place few would likely check. And apparently it’s for sale (not that the realtor mentioned anything in her glowing description of the property that it was built specifically by Mrs. E. H. Harriman, a prominent eugenicist, to house the Eugenics Record Office either).
But really, who would actually want to live in the former Eugenics Record Office?
It was glaringly clear to us that they want this place completely forgotten. Too bad for them.
