Front: A massive Victorian-style military barracks, converted into a psychiatric hospital. The site was eventually demolished and repurposed as the "Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care". "The grounds and area surrounding Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care are steeped in history. The original 380-acre site was chosen by Governor John Graves Simcoe as the naval and military base to protect the Upper Great Lakes from American threats in the aftermath of the War of 1812. Perched at the entrance of Penetanguishene Harbour, the site retains its commanding view of Severn Sound. During the 1960’s about 60 acres were turned into a historical park to preserve the early history site, now known as Discovery Harbour. [...] "By 1904, it was clear that, for a number of reasons, the Boys Reformatory was not suitably located in Penetanguishene. The remaining boys were scattered to other provincial institutions or community placements and the building was converted into an “asylum for the insane”. The first Superintendent of the hospital, Dr. Philip Spohn, was also the first Reeve of the Town of Penetanguishene. An extensive farming program carried out by the patients made the institution self-sufficient in food production – in fact it provided meat and produce for other provincial institutions. The demands of modern therapy and a shrinking patient population led to the phasing out of the farm program in the mid 1960’s." Source: http://www.waypointcentre.ca/about_us/history Back:
