Learn about the history of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital as we explore the patient-built underground tunnels and 19th century cottages. Tour presents an overview of the 89-years of the Hospital's history, acknowledges the varied experiences of patients and staff across different decades, and traces major treatment changes across time. Tour concludes with an optional entry into one of the un-renovated attics above the cottages.
Pre-registration is required.
Tours leave at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Tunnels and grounds are mobility accessible; attic requires steep set of stairs.
This event is a part of the Mental Health Awareness Month activities being coordinated by Humber's School of Social and Community Services.
