|Body= [[Stone House Hospital|The yellow brick building]] - a large, castellated structure in the 'Tudorbethan' style - was situated in extensive grounds. The central administration building contained offices, a grand dining room and a Great Hall (with kitchens adjacent) with a chapel above. The wings on each side of this building contained dormitories, wards and single cells; the one on the east housed male patients and that on the west female patients. A round water tower stood in the centre of the site. A two-storey pavilion block on the west of the site contained the laundry and the mortuary, and another on the east the bakery and workshops. Both pavilions were connected to the main building by covered walkways and both had sleeping accommodation on their upper floors. The Medical Superintendent had his own house (known today as 'The Hollies'). The site had four 'airing grounds', where patients could enjoy the outdoors; these contained outside lavatories (one of which survives today). Needless to say, the sexes were kept segregated. The Asylum had its own cemetery, on the north side of Bow Arrow Lane.

The last state hospital built in Illinois. Originally built to house infirm elderly patients with a capacity or 3,500 and expansion for an additional 1,500. Due to declining patient population nationwide by the mid 1960's, this was never needed. Beginning in 1965 the hospital began receiving inner city patients of all ages.
