Central staircase inside the North Annex building at Mayview State Hospital. 

The Mayview campus contained 39 buildings and was constructed on 335 acres. At the hospital's peak in the 1930's, this campus was home to over 4,000 patients.

The hospital closed in 2008, after 115 years of service. The state sold the property in 2010, for just over $500,000, to a company with a plan to turn the property into a "high amenity regional business park."

During this visit in April 2012, many of the buildings had already been demolished.
