ST. PAUL AP) — Time is running out for the old state mental hospital in Fergus Falls, a huge wedding cake of a building originally constructed to bring light and air into psychiatric wards.
So on Saturday, the building’s advocates plan to gather on its grounds for a giant group hug around the blocks-long, horseshoe-shaped structure. Friends of the Kirkbride are hoping the event will bring attention to the 124-year-old building’s plight.
