POtW: Topeka State Hospital

Today's picture is of the main building of the Topeka State Hospital. In operation from 1872 until 1997, the TSH was another example of a Kirkbride Asylum. The TSH housed mentally ill and insane patients who were unfit to mingle with society. The land is now owned by USD 501, the Topeka School District.
