The Dana Point Historical Society will have its next meeting on Wednesday, May 18, in council chambers located in Dana Point City Hall. Dana Point’s Dolphin House: The Lost Years of Capistrano by the Sea Hospital (1979 to 1998) will feature a presentation by a panel of former Capistrano by the Sea Hospital professionals sharing anecdotes and slides about the complex’s evolution, programs and clientele, documenting the years the Dolph House was used as a free-standing psychiatric hospital prior to being restored as a single family home. A Q&A period will end the program.
The event starts promptly at 7 p.m. and will have Marc Skelton PhD, Sarah Steinmeyer PhD, Jay Bruhl, RN, Barry Havlik, MA, Dee Goodfellow, LCSW and Maria Ricaurte, LISW (via remote) as featured speakers. A reception in their museum will follow the program.
