The Utah State Hospital opened in 1885 and has been in operation ever since. The Superintendent’s residence, however, was not built until 1934. It is one of many Utah buildings constructed during the 1930s under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA) and other New Deal programs.
