Farview State Hospital Agricultural Complex (The)
The Louise Berger Group, Inc. prepared this 63 page monograph for the Federal Bureau of Prisons who was required to document the complex prior to its demolition in 2002 to make way for a new Federal prison. The story provides insight into the history of Wayne County, institutional farms, and peonage in the United States. It begins with a review of public health care prior to 1883, follows it through the twentieth century, Farview State Hospital's dedication in 1912 to the recovery and rehabilitation of the criminal insane, and ends with its closing in 1976. Several pages with black and white photos document the agricultural complex's architecture through its evolution and final condition in 2001. Soft covered, limited supply
