The Marinette County Asylum, Mental Health Institution, and Poor Home was used from 1906 until 1972, then the old building was torn down and the land was cleared. In 1941 the county home and the asylum merged and was renamed the Marinette County Hospital. In 1974 the psychiatric patients were relocated and the institution became the Pine View Health Care Center. This new building is located on a new site facing Hospital Road west of the original building.
