Pano inside the lobby of the Jones Building

The Jones building at Central State Hospital in Georgia was constructed between 1928-1929 and was designed as a medical and surgical hospital complete with clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue. During the time, it was the only hospital in this county. 

Sadly, the Jones Building closed in 1979 and has sat vacant since.

This was the last location we explored during our trip to the Southern United States last May. 

I was so ecstatic to find a mostly in-tact morgue with drawers and doors. I realize that may sound "crazy" to most people, but it's an artifact of these asylums/hospitals that is usually destroyed or full of graffiti.
