Westborough State was established in 1886 as a residential treatment facility for the mentally ill. Westborough was one of the first hospitals in the United States to apply the principles of homeopathic medicine to the treatment of mental disorders. Its important place in the history of American psychiatry has been recognized through its inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Almost all of the buildings at Westborough State Hospital were demolished in 2019.
