Two buildings on the campus of Dorothea Dix Psychiatric Center in Bangor have fallen so deeply into disrepair that they should be demolished, according to a consultant the state hired to examine the condition of facilities on the sprawling campus off State Street. That two buildings on the storied campus are in such a condition — full of mold and other hazardous materials, according to the facilities assessment — shows how much of the psychiatric center property is currently unused, more than 120 years after it opened to alleviate overcrowding at the state's original psychiatric hospital in Augusta.
