Just outside the eastern limits of Ogdensburg is located the St. Lawrence State Hospital, a state institution for the care of the insane, and one of the largest public institutions in the state of New York. The buildings are magnificent stone structures and the grounds have a total acreage of 1,015 acres as well as 297 acres that are being rented. About 513 acres are under cultivation, foodstuffs for the hospital and fodder for the stock being raised here. The population of the hospital, including doctors, nurses, attendants and patients numbers close to 3,000.
