Middletown State Homeopathic Hospital
About 70 miles northwest of New York City,
Middletown is home to a curious relic of the state hospital system.
After the state hospital proper closed, some of the buildings were put to other
use, and some were abandoned. Almost all of the main building was demolished
about the early 1980s. Only a very small portion, at its southern end, was
left standing; I've yet to get a clear answer why it survived. Even in comparison
historic images, this remnant is barely recognizable as part of the
larger historic hospital building. It's upper story, dormers, turrets, and
porches have all been removed, a treatment given to other existing buildings
