With over 2000 acres of land and as many as 200 buildings, the campus of the former Central State Hospital is a city unto itself in Milledgeville’s Southside.

But the history of the hospital and the landscape and buildings that remain there continue to help us understand Milledgeville’s story and it’s place in Georgia and these United States.

On this edition of Milledgeville Matters, Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation President and CEO Mark C McDonald talks with host Daniel McDonald about Central State Hospital’s inclusion on the Trust’s 2020 Places in Peril List.
