     Recommended Equipment
    Built in 1960, it became the center of a high-profile wrongful commitment suit when a man, whose only crime was not being able to speak english, was stripped naked, held in isolation against his will, and forced to undergo electric shock treatment. What psychiatrists had said was “confusion” and “babbling in tongues” was actually his native language — Hungarian.

    Haverford State sits on 209 acres of prime land in Delaware county. Demolition has finally begun after 9 years of bickering, and most of the buildings are gone. As of 10/16/07, the boiler plant and Hilltop buildings remain.
