CURRENT SITE PHOTOS

In 2005, fourteen years after the hospital closed its doors, Rutland Heights State Hospital was demolished, leaving the site vacant. There are currently no buildings on this highly developable property and it has had full environmental remediation, allowing for ample opportunity for mixed use development at Rutland Heights.

OTHER STATE HOSPITAL REUSE PROJECTS

Reuse and redevelopment of former state hospitals has become a familiar trend across Massachusetts in recent decades. These sites, often containing huge and decaying institutional buildings, are often very valuable pieces of real-estate for towns. Reuse of state hospitals and insane asylums has included market-rate residences, affordable housing, open space, agriculture, community gardens, athletic fields, recreation areas, light industrial uses, commercial office space, public safety building, laboratories, and much more.
