My husband and I just joined this tour because we appreciate architecture and wanted to see what the buildings looked like before renovation. The tour was everything we hoped for. It was a small group of 9 and we were able to see everything without getting in anyones way. The buildings are amazing with a round room on every floor including the basement, transoms over every door, extremely wide hallways, helped you envision what life must have been like when the hospital was in operation. Anyone who enjoys history would appreciate this tour. The Traverse City Mental Hospital was far ahead of its time with a philosophy we should be implementing today.
