Description:

A Healthy. Fertile Location-An Historical Synopsis of the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center

John A. Baule, page 3

Since its founding in 1866 to the present, the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center in Ogdensburg (earlier the St. Lawrence State Hospital and at first the State Asylum for the Insane) has been a large and innovative force in the state's care for the mentally ill. Hundreds of acres and many buildings have been
developed into this large complex. Here the author presents a social history of the Center, based on an initial study he has done in preparing for the nomination of the buildings to the National Register of Historic Places.
