The abandoned Henryton Hospital opened in 1923 to treat African-American suffering from tuberculosis. In 1962, it became a facility for the developmentally disabled, and it closed in 1985. After that point, neglect began to claim the facility.
A Dec. 19 fire at the Carroll County site has been determined to be arson, officials said. Fires and other acts of vandalism have taken a toll on Henryton for years. The state has put the facility on the market several times but has not found a buyer.
