History[edit]

Opened October 1966, located just north of Rockford and had a more expansive ground plan then most of the other zone centers built at the time. The first director of the center, Dr. Hansell, was personally interested in the effects of crisis on people and wrote a series of articles on crisis theory that are still prevalent today.
