CSH: The North Campus

Built from a $4,000,000 grant from the State of Kentucky, a new campus of seven buildings were designed to bring Central State into the (then) modern era of Psychiatric treatment. Groundbreaking took place in July of 1962, and construction was completed by February of 1964. Due to lack of funds many of the new buildings sat empty for nearly a year. With construction of the new Administration building in 1986, and more outpatient care and treatment many of these buildings are now used for storage and other purposes.
