USA House of Vicodin 2015

Recommended Posts

I'm glad I had a chance to visit this place on numerous occasions but wished I'd done one last before it was demolished. When I first read about the plan to do so I figured it would not happen but sadly it did and very fast thanks to a turd of a governor. What an utter waste of a perfectly stable and in good condition except for some rooftops, building. :( As of today only the admin section stands and not for long while the state pilvers whatever they can get out of there to make money off of. These are from my visits over a few years

No I think that's just an American thing, asylums over here (UK) were often built using the echelon plan layout. I guess that's our equivalent

Ok....that's what I kinda figured :D
Great shots there Michelle and the location looks awesome.

Sad to hear much is gone but the name of the game.

Thanks for sharing :thumb

Thank you!! It was a neat place to go to but pretty empty for the most part. One side was modernized as it was used for awhile longer then the other side, the male side which was walled over in the 80's or so. A lot of politics were involved with this one and why it was torn down :(
Top notch pictures and location, it's a shame about the demolition!
Thank you very much!

It's an absolute travesty what happened to enable this place to be demolished, a massive loss for the country and it's heritage. I wish I had got to see it.

I've just noticed how you came about the name too, very clever!

Sorry you didn't get to see it :(. Yes it's a loss that's for sure. They saved the front columns for the preservation group but that's it :(. That's neat you figured out the name :D
That's an excellent set of images, what a place!! Shame to hear it got dozered:(
Thank you! Yes a total stupid move to say the least on the state :( Edited by peanutbutter_crackers

      Construction began in 1911 but completion of the original design did not occur until the early 1930s. The institution was planned as a "farm colony," whereby patients were put to work raising animals and growing food. Superintendent Charles S. Little told the New York Times: "In order to make this plan a success, it is necessary to begin to train the feeble minded when they are children. The feeble minded, if taken at an early age can be trained to do things better than if the education of which they are capable is postponed until the less pliable years." The site was named for William Pryor Letchworth, who served on the New York State Board of Charities from 1873 to 1896. Letchworth Village was one of the largest and most progressive facilities for the mentally retarded in the United States. Situated on 2000 acres of farmland with the Towns of Haverstraw and Stony Point. It was designed as a self-supporting community comprised of 130 field stone buildings.
      The facility closed on March 31, 1996, but administrative offices remained open until 2002.
