"The Drive" Iowa State Hospital, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
This postcard features the grounds near what was the state insane asylum in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. It was, I believe, intentionally laid back from the main road in a peaceful setting. As a junior in high school (1968 or 1969) my Sociology class at high school toured the facility, as well as the prison in Fort Madison, Iowa, and at that time I could offer the assessment that neither were joyous or even bearable institutions.
