    These were once state of the art buildings. The ” cage like” fencing you see were place on the ramps in the infirmary buildings for safety. Our state has chosen to close down building AND our mental hospitals and place the mentally clients on the streets to be homeless and beggars. A lot of them end up in prison while criminals walk free. Having worked there for the greater part of 30 years I was very happy to care for the mentally ill patients…for the first 20 years. Then a shift occurred in the administration/politics and treatment was lacking. The attention shifted to the anti-social, drug/alcohol, criminals avoiding jail………I got out! The pictures are haunting but in no wat depicts what we did as workers to make it a good place for treatment.

    Are these pics from the old hospital? Or one of the other buildings before they were demolished?
