Fairview Hospital and Training Center. Salem, Oregon
It was established in the early 1900s as the State Institution for the Feeble Minded and did not close until 2000. It was home to people with developmental disabilities but later on took patients from LeBreton Insane Asylum. Many of the patients who were admitted to Fairview were sterilized prior to being released.
My parents both worked here when they were teenagers and I think that that’s so weird to think that they started dating because they became friends working at a mental hospital
