The Newberry Regional Mental Health Center is located in the small town of Newberry in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. After deinstitutionalization, the property was put to use by the Newberry Correctional Facility (opened in 1996). Many buildings have been renovated and maintained by the Correctional Facility - except the one photographed. The long corridors form a U shape connecting living units, labs and offices, as well as the R.G. Ferguson Hospital. Patients not allowed outside could still be active and get some nice views by walking down these hallways. Of course, they also scratched writings into the brick walls.


Video attempting to show the scale of the large U-shaped building.

It is risky business to trespass with all of the correctional facility staff watching this place. I wrote a letter requesting permission to photograph the grounds and was given possibly the final tour by the assistant of the warden. More photos and information can be seen in heinrick's post.
