Humber's Historic Tunnel Tours - Doors Open Toronto
The southern campus of Humber College is where the old Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital stood before it shut down in 1979. Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital was its final name but it had several other names between its opening in 1889 and closing in 1979. Here's the full list:
- Mimico Branch Asylum
- Mimico Insane Asylum
- Mimico Hospital for the Insane
- Ontario Hospital, Mimico
- Ontario Hospital, New Toronto
- Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital
Today, as part of Doors Open Toronto, I took a tour of the old tunnels that linked up the cottages. In addition to learning the fascinating history of the hospital, there were glimpses of the original architecture and brickwork.
Here are some pics I took of the historic tunnels.
Fun fact: part of Suicide Squad was filmed in this tunnel!
