A few more pics of Florida State Hospital
I showed a couple of pictures of my drive through the campus of Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee in my post earlier this week here along with a brief history. I wanted to show a few more today. The campus is quite large (620 acres) and they even have their own fire station. When I was in college at FSU many years ago, I took an abnormal psychology class and we visited the hospital on a field trip. I remember being appalled by the conditions at that time and more than a little uncomfortable and even frightened by some of the patients. I have to say it looks like many improvements have been made since then. Of course, I didn't go inside any of the buildings this time! By the way, I cannot remember why the flags were flying at half staff on the day I was there.
