Western State: from Mental Hospital to Fancy Community

I saw this on a Shenandoah Valley television program and looked it up on the web: Western State Hospital in Staunton has been sold to a developer who turn it into a planned community of office, retail, residential and meeting space. The 75-acre site has some surprisingly historic buildings. See the site for a look at the proposed plans and the history which includes a connection to Thomas Jefferson.
