The Joseph P. Ladd Center is an abandoned mental institution on a 331 acre parcel. It was purportedly started as a school for misfits or mentally handicapped individuals in 1908. The Ladd School was started as a farm colony where patients were housed in small cottages rather than in large institutions that developed later. The patients did small chores, farming, and later making clothing or other household items. The facility was closed as an insitution of the state in 1993. In 1997, the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation was charged with the redevelopment of the former Ladd School property.
