Mayview State Hospital / by Justin Merriman

The Mayview State Hospital is a psychiatric hospital located in Bridgeville, PA. It was opened in December of 1893 and now, after nearly 115 years the hospital is scheduled to close by December 31st of this year. Once housing over 4,000 patients, there are only a handful of patients left residing on the hospital grounds. Nearly all of the 35 buildings are vacant with only a few buildings still being used. Driving through the hospital's 300 plus acres it feels as though you are in a ghost town.
