  •  Interesting Features
    The one abandoned building on the property is pretty untouched and filled with old furniture, books and papers. There's some pretty extreme water damage inside. The paintings in some of the hallways indicate that the building was used for alchohol rehabilitation. A map of the campus identifies it as the "RE/RW Building".

    As of the end of Feb. '07 all abandoned buildings on the campus have been torn down - including the RE/RW building. Absolutely nothing left at Delaware State Hospital.
