122. Female Patient Wards 51 & 52
Built 1912 - Demolished 2012

This was part of Group Two and later housed the mentally retarded patients

The large rooms on the ends were the Dormitories and Day Rooms
There are two Turkey Vultures sitting on the roof, one is on the chimney


This walkway lead to the entrance by the offices


This extension was added on to the main building later on.


The First Floor with the boarded windows was the Sewing Room
The top floor was a Dormitory

Group II Women's Sewing Room


Old floor planes show the basement of this extension as being the Catholic Chapel


This wall is part of the room the extends out into the circle and behind it was the Priests sanctuary
Rev. Mgr. John C. York, whom York Hall was named after, was the Hospital Chaplin for many years and may have said mass down in the original chapel.


                           Almost all of the poles seem to have red bumper pads wrapped around them
Later on the Hospital would build a small Church on the edge of the property near town. The land was then sold and St Joseph's Church was built and the small wooden one torn down.


On the first floor the three white windows was the patient clothing room and had a service elevator to the other floors for transporting laundry but was never put in to service. The single window after that was the small waiting room for the next group of windows to the right which was the Treatment Room. On the top floor the three windows were the Visitors Room and the elevator was next to that and then a small dorm room.


Side entrance to the extension.


The Dorms and Day rooms


The old porches on these buildings had been torn down and redesigned three times in the life of the structures.
Once in 1957 and then again when the building was reradiated in 1966


The top floor on this side had the Seclusion Rooms, or Observation Rooms today, showers and bathrooms.
The showers were always separate from the bathrooms as the patients were only allowed to shower and shave one day a week and that was usually on Visitors Day. They were not allowed to keep their own bathroom accessories like scissors and razors and were under constant supervision while shaving and cleaning up.


To the left and right of this entrance were offices and then the showers and dorms


While the end chimneys were for the fire places the middle ones were for air ventalation


Side doorway with nice old wood and copper work


Basement storage and utility rooms


Corner basement room 1


Notice the tree is actually growing through the bottom steps of the fire escape


Fire escape for second floor
All of these old buildings had originally been designed without fire escapes


Dorm or Day Room




Top corner room 3


Going back down


Front corner and porch


Front porch entrance
The original porches had large brick columns

Demolished 2012
