This building was built in 1932 when the mountaintop facility was still a TB Sanatorium. I think the idea was to make the place seem like a hotel or vacation spot to the suffering TB patient. Eventually the drugs were developed to combat TB and this Sanatorium was converted into a hospital for the mentally handicapped. That probably meant the people were restrained as if they were in prison. Eventually the hospital was converted into a prison. I'm not sure what this building was for, inside was a big kitchen, a room that looked like a dance room, shoe shine chairs, destroyed books about physically restraining people, and more. The architecture was very interesting with some cool features inside. In the second image I tried "light painting" with my iPhone with not very good success.
