The Historic Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital


Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital is located in Lexington, Kentucky. The hospital was established by a legislative act of December 4, 1822 and is the 2nd oldest psychiatric hospital in the United States. On May 1, 1824 the hospital, known then as the Lunatic Asylum, welcomed it's first patient. Over the years, the name has changed several times, until 1912 when the General Assembly officially renamed it Eastern State Hospital.
