Very interesting book, with more than 200 great photographs (black and white, color) showing the decayed remains of numerous hospitals in dozens of states, an impressive work.

Photo 1 = Kankakee State hospital – Kankakee (Illinois)
Photo 2 = Autopsy theatre, St. Elizabeth Hospital, Washington D.C.
Photo 3 = Breezeway to infirmary ward, Taunton State hospital, Taunton (Massachusetts)
Photo 4 = Lobby of Mead Building, Yankton State Hospital, Yankton (South Dakota)
Photo 5 = State records and files, Spring Grove State Hospital, Catonsville (Maryland)
Photo 6 = Courtyard gazebo, Concord State Hospital, Concord (New Hampshire)
Photo 7 = Patient Toothbrushes, Hudson River State Hospital, Poughkeepsie (New York)

Re: Unknown State Mental Hospital

that place is so much more beautiful than the current facilities. Remember, it wasn't so long ago that people had actual money. A slow degredation in quality and cutting corners for maximum income has made the current healthcare facilities.. substandard at best. If I were going to be put in a straight jacket, abused, drugged up and experimented on, I would rather it be in a lovely place such as that.
