Survey number HABS NY-6343
Significance: Creedmoor State Hospital was opened in 1912 as a small farm colony. During the 1920s and early 1930s the grounds were developed into a major psychiatric center housing thousands of patients and staff members in a series of substantial Colonial- and Byzantine-inspired buildings. This constructions reflects the major expansion of New York State's psychiatric hospitals during the third and fourth decades of the 20th century, as the state became increasingly involved psychiatric care.
