With Eastern and Western State Hospitals seriously overcrowded the state opened the Third Kentucky Lunatic Asylum near Anchorage. Originally known as the House of Reform for Juvenile Delinquents at Lakeland. Several years later the hospital began to house patients of all ages. By the 1920s allegations of abuse and neglect became an issue and beginning in the '30s the hospital began to perform lobotomies electroshock therapy and other methods to treat patients.
