Rhode Island State Hospital for Mental Diseases (former): Adolph Meyer Building – Cranston RI

Description

A substantial structure, of conservative Colonial Revival design. Its only ornament of any significance is the Palladian Window in the center pavilion, with a delicate fan above. It was designed by Edwin E. Cull of Providence, who also designed the Hospital’s administration offices in the same year.

Note: The survey book actually attributes the building to the partnership of Cull & Robinson.  However, that firm was not formed until 1946, so it had to have been designed by Cull working independently.
