From "Turney Tech" to Cleveland neighborhood
Here's a cool video created by Jason Mihalko, a psychologist in Massachusetts who has a profound interest in thinking and writing about psychiatric facilities and asylums
Today on a 5-mile hike down in Valley View and Northfield, Sophie and I walked past the campus of Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare, a regional psychiatric hospital on Sagamore Road. It doesn't look like a very inviting place.
Thoughts turned to Mill Creek and our home, which is one of 220 mostly single-family homes sitting on the 58 or so acres where the Northern Ohio Lunatic Asylum (also known by many other names) stood until 38 years ago.
|What was before Mill Creek|
Ask anyone who grew up in this Warner-Turney neighborhood or in nearby Garfield Heights what they called it, and all agree on just one name: Turney Tech (it was located on Turney Road).
Jason's webpage is well worth a visit.
