Northampton State Hospital Artifacts for Sale

Artifacts from the former Northampton State Hospital are being auctioned off online.  Proceeds will help restore the fountain that once sat in front of Old Main.  The artifacts were turned over to the city by MassDevelopment, the quasi-public agency that tore down the old buildings and developed Hospital Hill.  To view the odd collection of items, go to municibid.com and enter the search term “Northampton State Hospital.”
