A hallway inside the pavilion.




An x-ray room within the first floor medical wing of the pavilion. To the right is the control room. The tiles here have fallen away to reveal walls lined with integral lead blocks.

The remains of one of the x-ray apparati.



An airy dayroom at the end of the south wing speaks to the pavilion's original purpose as a ward for TB patients.

A view down the southern stairwell.



The exterior of one of the seclusion rooms. This is the only such room which does not have an extra layer of sheet metal over the door.

The deadbolts were retrofitted when the hospital was repurposed as a rehabilitation facility. This seclusion room door has two locks to ensure that even the strongest patient cannot escape, and is reinforced with sheet metal.

The interior of a seclusion room. A heavy mesh screen, added after the initial construction, protects the windows from the withdrawing patient. A window provides a view into the room from the nurses' station, so that the patient is visible at all times during their withdrawal.

A chain and lock secure the screen that bars access to the windows.

Several murals are still visible on the second floor, although most of them have been punched through, presumably by vandals in the 1970s when it was popular to sneak onto the island by boat.



On one of the murals, a patient has written a vulgar poem expressing his feelings about the institution.



Originally designated the "Services Building", this building was referred to as the "School" after the hospital reopened in 1952.

While being altered to function as a school, shoddy construction techniques were employed for the partitioning. Here, the main hallway is askew under the weight of the metal beams in the wall.

The principal's office; here, the door is helping to stop the wall from falling over further.

The auditorium boasted a number of seats and a small stage.



The gymnasium, built in the hopes that athleticism could help overcome addiction.

Although most of the schoolrooms have been stripped bare, this printing press remains.



The window has fallen out of the wall in this science classroom.
