I found this on a psychiatry timeline:
1 Mar 1883 The Arkansas State Lunatic Asylum, in Little Rock, opened for patients, with C. C. Forbes as superintendent. The hospital was mandated by the state legislature on April 19, 1873. Before construction began, the legislature passed a bill to relocate the hospital to Hot Springs. When the governor vetoed the bill, he was burned in effigy in Hot Springs. The hospital was later renamed the State Hospital for Nervous Diseases and is now Arkansas State Hospital.
