I am looking for information on Appalachian Hall Psychiatric Hospital. I have information that my great-aunt may have been a nurse there during and immediately after WWI. Any info is greatly appreciated.

The old hospital was renovated, and is now an apartment building. I live there and am very interested in any information regarding those that worked or were patients here. It is now called the Historic Kenilworth Inn Apartments, if that is any help.

I worked there i969 and early 1970. My mother did private duty nursing there before and after me. they had rooms on the top floor that employees could rent and I had the largest with two beds so Mother could stay over in bad weather. Although I was an activity aide I also assisted with ECT-that is something hard to watch at 18. I would do private duty nursing with alcoholics-mental breakdowns -kids who sniffed glue to those known as senile. I left there to enlist in the Marines after my position was cut.A few years ago I DROVE UP and went in when they were changing to housing-that was on my bucket list i guess since it held a lot of memories

I was a patient there in the late 80's. It was such a beautiful building in such a serene setting.

I was a patient there in the late 80's. What would they have done with the records of the patients when it was closed as a mental hospital?
