TImberlawn was just featured on the "Most Endangered" list by Preservation Dallas.

https://www.preservationdallas.org/advo ... ed-places/

"Dr. James J. Terrill founded the Timberlawn Sanitarium in 1917 outside of the Dallas city limits on “eleven acres of orchard, garden and grove land” as described at the time by The Dallas Morning News. The spacious grounds were thought to facilitate patient improvement from psychiatric conditions. Included on the site was a large two-story neo-classical style house with an attic which was converted into the sanitarium according to the newspaper."

From the DMN article:

Moayedi said he looked into the idea of reusing the 4,700-square-foot house.

"We thought about trying to preserve it as an amenity center, but its not in good enough shape," he said. "The structure itself is in bad shape and full of asbestos.

"We don't want to destroy anything that has any value," he said. "We'd be happy to let someone come and move it or whatever."
