I am the project manager for Weston Hospital Task Force, a National Historic Landmark located in West Virginia, and traditionally among the largest if not "the largest" handcut blue sandstone building in the world. My problem: I have been requested to "prove" that the building is indeed the largest stone or largest handcut stone or largest handcut blue sandstone building in the world? in the US? in the Western Hemisphere? in the Northern Hemisphere?
I know it is not the "largest building" in the world. However, this R. Snowden Andrews' building designed on the Kirkbride plan for mental hospitals in 1858 is 1292 feet long, has 9 acres under roof, nearly a thousand doors.
I would appreciate any help on this subject. If this subject is not appropriate for this forum, please excuse the intrusion.
