Event description

Description

Learn about the history of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital as we explore the patient-built underground tunnels and nineteenth-century cottages. Tour presents an overview of the 89-years of the Hospital's history, acknowledges the varied experiences of patients and staff across different decades, and traces major treatment changes across time. Tour concludes with an optional entry into one of the un-renovated attics above the cottages.

Tour is offered FREE of charge. Due to space restrictions along the tour route, pre-registration is required.

Tunnels and grounds are mobility accessible; attic requires steep set of stairs.
