Name: Mass Mental Health Center
Location: Boston, MA Current Status: Demolished
Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) was founded in 1912 as the
Psychopathic Department of the Boston State Hospital. The
original building stood four stories high and was intended to hold
about 100 patient beds. It also included patient and examination
rooms, a pharmacy, library, surgical suite, roof top garden and many
outdoor areas for patient recreation and enjoyment. Also included in
the plans were laboratories for the director and laboratory chief, with
conveniences and apparatus for careful and accurate study, which is one
of the leading ideas in the provision of such a hospital. MMHC
remained at this location until 2003 when the business was moved to
another location leaving behind this unique T shaped structure that
basically curled the ends of the "T" into itself to form two courtyards
on both sides for the male and female patients.
