Williamsburg and Hampton Roads Sights

Public Hospital

  • Hospital–Sight

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

A reconstruction of a 1773 insane asylum, the Public Hospital provides an informative, shocking look at the treatment of the mentally ill in the 18th and 19th centuries. It also serves as cover for a modern edifice that houses very different exhibitions; entrance to the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum is through the hospital lobby.
