Historic Portal to Springﬁeld State HospitalIron gates once marked the entrance to Springfield State Hospital, about one-half mile in front of you. The hospital, which opened in 1896, was one of the largest mental health facilities on the East Coast. For decades, medical staff, hospital employees, and patients passed through this portal into what might have seemed a separate world.
