In 1851 the Massachusetts legislature appointed a commission to find a site for a second state hospital.

This was necessary to alleviate the pressure of a rising patient population at Worcester.

The city of Taunton was chosen and the State Hospital at Taunton began housing patients in 1854.

Although not as large or as architecturally ornate as its sibling in Worcester, the Taunton State Hospital, as a Kirkbride building is still impressive.

Designed in a neo-classical style by the architect Elbridge Boyden, its most striking features are the Cupolas and many capitals.

Like most of the Kirkbride hospitals, which were once state-of-the-art mental health care facilities placed in secluded and idyllic grounds, lack of funding and changing societal attitudes have relegated most of these impressive structures to decay and abandon.

In game this is presented as a large hospital with expanded patient and coverage radius.
