Former Athens State Mental Hospital
The former Administration Building for the Athens State Mental Hospital housed offices for the superintendent, assistant physicians, steward, and a general reception room for visitors. Two wings added to the building were used for patients. The second floor contained apartments of the medical superintendent. The third and fourth floors were used for administrative offices.
Today this building, belonging to Ohio University, is known as Lin Hall and houses the Kennedy Museum of Art. Kennedy Museum is named in honor of Edwin Kennedy and Ruth Zimmerman Kennedy who were alumni and great supporters of Ohio University.
