Highland Community News
When Patton State Hospital staff member Anthony Ortega got the green light to build a museum dedicated to the hospital’s history, California State University, San Bernardino, history students came looking for internships.
Graduate student Shannon Long worked with Cal State professor Tiffany Jones and Ortega to help create the museum at Patton.
“It ended up being Shannon’s graduate project,” said Jones. “She, along with three other interns designed a room at the museum.”
On Aug. 22, Patton State Hospital celebrated its 125th anniversary. It opened the doors to its museum to share its history of the facility with the public. Patton’s museum sits inside a 1950s historic cottage. The dwelling was the residence for some of the hospital’s staff and families.
