Building: Broughton State Hospital -- Western North Carolina Insane Asylum (Morganton, Burke County, North Carolina)

Architectural note:
The hospital underwent additions and renovations in 1886 and in the twentieth century, in response to modern ideas on treating mental illness.
Historical note:
The hospital was authorized by state legislature to relieve the existing insane asylum, and was designed under the influence of Thomas Kirkland, hospital planner. The hospital opened in 1883 and was renamed in 1959 for former governor Melville Broughton. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
