Yes, the hospital opened in 1885 and was known as Terrell State Hospital and North Texas Lunatic Asylum, for those "incurably insane".(http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/mhhospitals/TerrellSH/TSH_About....) I, too, have a relative or two who once resided there. Barnabus J Moore died there in 1941 from what is now known as bipolar disorder. Wildwood Cemetery is adjacent to the hospital http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/mhhospitals/TerrellSH/TSH_About..... Quite an ominus place.
