Folsom, CA


This institution for the criminally insane in CA was begun in 1907, but was still unfinished by 1915. Apparently, some inmates were held here occasionally, but no criminally-insane person was ever lodged here.


The Folsom Hospital for the Criminally Insane was torn down during the 1950s.
