Columbus State Hospital, also known as Ohio State Hospital for Insane, was a public psychiatric hospital in Columbus, Ohio, established in 1877. The original hospital was constructed under the Kirkbride Plan.
The original hospital building, known as the Lunatic Asylum of Ohio, was completed in 1838. In 1868, a fire destroyed the asylum, and it was rebuilt in the Kirkbride style in 1877. The hospital was closed in the late 1980s, and demolished between 1991 and 1996.
