J. Y.: Old Mental Hospital

Old Mental Hospital

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Ngopi-Yamcha The building of Old Mental Hospital was constructed in 1892 as quarters for the European nursing staff of the Civil Hospital.

After World War ll, was converted into a mental hospital until 1961 and was subsequently used as a day treatment centre for psychiatric out-patients till 1971.

Since then had been left vacant till the Government decided in 1990s to keep the facade and rebuild a community centre within.

The huge building with more than a hundred year history was once a mental hospital, so easy to understand that why so many ghost stories come out from there as became a famous "GHOST HOUSE".

High Street, Sai Ying Pun area, Western District, Hong Kong.
