In 2004, I created a Metropolitan State Hospital website however, it was never fully completed, lacked depth, no detailed history and it was created halfheartedly. In 2008, I let the website expire. Over the years, I discovered more information in addition to what I already had which is all now featured here. This version hopefully reflects a more thorough and complete record of the facility. 

If you use any information featured on this site, please credit (except the videos). Any image usage requires permission from me personally prior to posting/using. 

Thank you,


This website has no affiliation with the State of Massachusetts, the towns of Waltham, Belmont or Lexington, Avalon at Lexington Hills or the Department of Mental Health. If you’re in search of former patient records, please contact the DMH directly or this link may be helpful as well.
