“the Charity Hospital of Vicksburg”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Kuhn Memorial State Hospital - It began as the Vicksburg's City Hospital built on an estate in the 1840's and expanding and ending as a multi-building institution in 1989. In 1871 the state of Mississippi took over the hospital and renamed it the State Charity Hospital at Vicksburg. Later in the 1950's the name was changed again to Kuhn Memorial State Hospital, in honor of Mr. Kuhn who donated his estate to the hospital.  The 4th floor of the Kuhn State Memorial Hospital was used as a minimum security prison, with inmates doing small tasks for the hospital. It also had a house on the grounds for patients with infectious diseases named 'The Pest House'. Today it lies alone just waiting for a new use to arise.

Went and explored this place, was in awe at the ruin of the hospital and was there for quite some time going around the outside and a little on the inside, but as told by a tour guide (after visiting this place first of course) you need to be more afraid of the living than the dead. So be aware and be safe!
