What is the status of older DeWitt buildings with an historic designation?

The DeWitt General Hospital Historic District (designation based on national Register of Historic Places designation listing on 2-12-16) was considered in the PCGC Master Plan Update EIR’s. The Update identified the retention of 15 of the DeWitt General Hospital Historic District buildings. The remaining buildings were analyzed for demolition over the life of the Master Plan Update. The buildings to be demolished allow for construction of new facilities. Photographic recordation of the buildings throughout the PCGC property was competed in 2004. This recordation meets Historic American Building Survey material standards. Additionally, the County established the DeWitt History Museum within the building located at 2995 Richardson Drive. This building, used for officer’s quarters during the hospital era, The museum includes photographs, artifacts, and exhibits that provide information on the various uses of the property, from its purchase by the federal government as a WWII hospital, its subsequent purchase by the state Department of Mental Hygiene as a state hospital, and its most current function in the PCGC. On April 23, 2019, the Board of Supervisors certified the EIR and adopted a Mitigation Monitoring Reporting Program.
