Although it has now been taken down, it used to bring in a lot of tourists. Since Weyburn is a small town holding the population if 11,000 people this was very exciting. The doors opened December 29th 1921. Rumor has it that not everyone admitted into the hospital needed to be.
It was the site of lobotomies, electric shock therapy, and some of Canada’s most controversial LSD experiments. If you we’re to go out into the fields around this mental hospital you could find a little shack known as “hang man hut.” It was said that a man had hung himself there and haunted the area. As you could imagine I’m sure there are many lost souls in this area.
