This facility was built in 1940 as a care facility for the elderly, mentally ill and developmentally disabled. Despite the name is brackets above – and what many people believe – this facility was never known as the Sheboygan County Insane Asylum.

Although, it is labeled on Google as the Sheboygan Insane Asylum so. . .

The truth is that name was actually used by another institution that was once inside of Sheboygan that was torn down in 1960. It was located where N 23rd Street is between Kohler Memorial Drive and Superior Avenue. Much of it used to be where the Pay n Save is now.

This facility was opened in 1880 to replace the original asylum built – and long since demolished – in the now ghost town of Winooski.

Unlike it’s predecessors this facility is still standing; albeit on private property.

From 1944 to 1945 the US Military took over the property, renamed it Camp Sheboygan, and moved German and Italian POW’s that were considered too high of a security risk to hold in the United Kingdom. They were used to work the fields of the facility.

In 1969 the hospital was used for addiction treatment as well as the mentally ill.

In 1978 it switched over to the developmentally disabled and patients with chronic illnesses although this was beginning to change again when the facility closed in 2002.
