Description:
Bridgewater State Hospital, located in southeastern Massachusetts, is a state facility housing the criminally insane and those whose sanity is being evaluated for the criminal justice system. It was established in 1855 as an almshouse. It was then used as a workhouse for inmates with short sentences who worked the surrounding farmland. It was later rebuilt in the 1880s and again in 1974. Bridgewater State Hospital currently houses 309 inmates all of whom are adult males.[1] The facility was the subject of the 1967 documentary Titicut Follies.[2] Bridgewater State Hospital falls under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Department of Correction.
