The Richardson Olmsted Complex in Buffalo, New York, was built in the late 1800s and designed by Henry Hobson, the American architect. A system of specialized treatment was developed and incorporated by Dr. Thomas Story Kirkbride for people with mental illness. As mental health treatments changed and diverted resources, the buildings on the grounds deteriorated. In 1986 the Complex was designated a National Historic Landmark and in 2006, The Richardson Center Corporation was formed in order to save and regenerate the complex through state appropriation.
