History[edit]

Originally patients deemed "mentally retarded" resided in the East View Home for Feeble-Minded, in their own building at Central State. In 1971 a separate facility just south of the CSH campus. By 2014 the state closed the facility as a part of a plan to close 5 of the 6 state developmental centers by 2020.
