Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ... for men, and next is outlined a group for 600 patients, showing possible future extension. On a hill near the lake, between the west and east hills, is the Gross or middle hill, with a maximum elevation of 540 feet. On this hill will be placed the group for disturbed cases. On the lower end of the east hill will be placed the farm colony to accommodate at least 200 patients. As thus planned, the institution will accommodate 3,000 patients, and it was thought it was necessary by the State Architect and the State Hospital Commission, that we should show to what extent we could develop this site. A railroad is being built on the site across the lower end of the east hill, over the west valley, and along the side of the west hill, extending to Crom Pond Road, a distance of a little over two miles. Along the line of the railroad on the west hill will be placed the service buildings, viz.: the industrial groups, power house, shops, laundry, storehouse, bakery, etc. The group for disturbed cases is 1,800 feet from the power house. This hill rises up gently from the lake and gives a splendid view of the surrounding country. On the lower side of this hill, facing the lake, we will be able to place convalescent cottages, amusement parks, etc. On the lower side of the east hill is a large area which can be devoted entirely to location of piggeries and sewage disposal plant. In the development of this institution, it has been thought wise to advocate the cottage plan. ly own opinion in the matter is that no cottage should be built to accommodate over 50 patients. This plan calls for cottages to accommodate 100 patients, with no ward for the chronic cases to accommodate over 50 patients and small dormitories to accommodate not over 20, and no more
