It really tears at my heart when they bulldoze one of my lovely asylums for no particular reason.  Pictured here is the wooden skyway that connected the 1854 Kirkbride building at Taunton State Hospital with the later infirmary ward.  It is now in pieces in a garbage dump somewhere.  And what did they replace this beautiful building with?  Currently, 5 years later, it’s a vacant lot.
