The New York State Office of Mental Health will once again be offering free tours of the historic Old Main Building at the Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center in West Utica.

The educational tours are scheduled for Friday, June 8th and will take place every 15 minutes from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Those interested in touring the building must register in advance and tour groups sizes are limited to 25 people. A total of 500 people will be able to tour the building.

“Old Main is one of the historic treasures of the Mohawk Valley area. The landmark is not just a major former employer of our region, it was the birthplace of the modern mental health treatment system. I am proud to have worked with the State Office of Mental Health, the Landmarks Society, and other organizations for several years to give the public a chance to see this breathtaking building, and learn about its history. If you haven’t had a chance to tour Old Main, I urge you to make a reservation,” said Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

Reservations must be made by June 3rd by e-mailing emailing OldMainTours@omh.ny.gov.
