I am doing a report on Maryland hospitals that closed in the 80's. I cannot seem to find much information about the old Mount Wilson State Hospital that was on Mount Wilson Lane, in Baltimore County Maryland. If anyone has any information please let me know. I think it closed in 1981. There is a little info in the Maryland archives but not much. There was even a post office in the hospital, and I think Mount Wilson even had its own zip code back in the 70's. I also need to find out who named the hospital and where "mount Wilson" came from. Thank you!

Probably not much help but as a teenager in the late '80s after it was abandoned, my friends and I would use Mt. Wilson as a place to meet and drink beer. If I remember correctly, it was renovated and became an assisted living community.
