The Facility moves closer to Abandonment
The front enterance on a cold but sunny February Afternoon
Another front enterance shot
The front enterance is equiped with a beautiful brass hand rail & bannister,
along a marble walkway. They don't build them like that anymore.
First look on the shady side of the abandoned west wing.
Telephoto shot of a decrepit cupola on the abandoned west wing
Another Shot of the west wing. The property is listed for sale. I believe
the price was 5 million and that includes all buildings and 80 acres. I don't
think anyone will buy it for that amount of money. The renovations just to repair 30 years
of neglect would be astronomical.
The end of the west wing, just recently boarded up.
This is a view of the west wing looking back towards the rest of the facility.
The abandoned wing and the transition to the portions still in use.
This picture shows just a little portion of the facility. It is huge.
A view of the west wing from the maintenance buildings.
Almost everything was built in 1920.
I believe this is the elevator system used to lift coal for use in the powerplant.
The power plant has only been used to generate steam for heat for many years. I am not
sure when the hospital stopped producing it's own power, but I would assume in the 1950's
when the province was building the power grid.
Long shot of the Abandoned west wing
A portion of the still used (not sure as to what the use it) south wing. One of the
few spots where windows have been updated. This wing has faired better than the rest.
Shot taken from highway that is atleast 1/4 mile away.
Another shot from far.
Even from the distance this shot was taken, you can't get the whole facility into 1 picture.
The next time I get there, I am sure there will be less of the facility in use. The remaining
300 patients have moved, or will very shortly into a new facility built on the grounds.
