This WNED-TV original production shares the 150-year history and massive rehabilitation effort of a national landmark in Buffalo, NY designed by architect H.H.

Originally built as the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane, the buildings and grounds are undergoing rehabilitation efforts to transform the campus into a community asset for the future.
