was created due to overcrowding at the other two state hospitals. The over all campus building style was Colonial Revival that was typical throughout New England. The hospital was designed not to have any dark corners or cubbyholes. The cornerstone was laid for the first building in July 1933. Roughly half of the main buildings were erected in the 1930s and '40s, with the rest of the larger ones completed in the 1950s. The hospital opened and received its first patients from Connecticut Valley Hospital on June 1, 1931.
