We'd love to hear from you!

Share Your Story


Central State Hospital closed in 1994, but its history is important, as are the people who experienced that history in various ways. It's important to preserve and share the stories and diverse experiences of people with many links to and relationships with the hospital and to the former hospital grounds- people who sought treatment and healing there or their loved ones who did; people who worked there as doctors, nurses, custodians, cooks, therapists, groundskeepers, volunteers, etc.; people who lived in the neighborhoods that grew up around the hospital...

If you would like to help us preserve your story and your perspective or if you'd just like to know more about the Voices project, we'd love to hear from you.
