Farview State Hospital

(State Hospital for the Criminal Insane)

Waymart, Wayne Co., Pennsylvania

The Farview State Hospital and Agricultural Complex has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Preservation Pennsylvania "Pennsylvania at Risk 2000" has put this site on threatened.

The Organization of Concerned Citizens along with local Historical Societies are in a pitched battle in an effort to conserve this historic site. They are seeking all the support they can get. The Section 106 Process is still ongoing, and the Advisory Council (NHPA), is poised to sign an MOA.

Thanks to Grace DeFina (OCC Correspondent Secretary) for this preservation alert (10/27/2000)
