Description: Reverse reads: “Farm Life. Athens Co., Ohio. Ducks at Athens State Hospital. Photo copied by Federal Writers’ Project, Dayton, Ohio. July 6, 1938. Please give following credit line – Courtesy of the Ohio Farmer, Cleveland, Ohio. Prints sent to Cincinnati 7-12-38.”
Originally, the hospital's grounds consisted of a park-like setting, with ponds, gardens, and fountains. Doctors hoped that the beautiful surroundings would assist patients in recovering their mental health. Patients worked in the gardens, the greenhouse, the orchards, or the dairy, helped to tend livestock, or found employment in the asylum's carriage shop. The asylum also boasted a physical plant that heated the various buildings with steam heat. Many of the patients were never released from the hospital. Most of these people were buried in the asylum's cemetery. View on Ohio Memory.
