Photographer's Note

The Worcester State Lunatic Hospital, the original name of the current Worcester State Hospital, was the first state owned hospital established in this country to treat mental illnesses. It was designed by architects Weston and Rand of Worcester in the Victorian Gothic style. The original design was created to reflect the ideas of Dr. Thomas Kirkbride, who promoted the “moral treatment” of the mentally ill.
