MUSEUM & GROUNDS
THE GROUNDS AS THEY ARE TODAY
Parkland Building
Pine Ridge Building
Built in 1912, this four-storey building is the largest of the major buildings, with approximately 200,000 square feet of floor space and another 100,000 square feet of storage space. The newest and smallest of the four main buildings, the Pine Ridge building was finished in 1932 and housed BMHC's female patients. It has 30,000 square feet of usable floor space. 
.
Nurses' Residence
Valleyview Building
Built in 1922, it is the only building protected as a provincial heritage site. With murals, mosaic-tile floors and detailed wood carvings, the building is thought to have the most heritage significance of any of the main four buildings. The building overlooks the forested ravine that runs along First Street.

The Nurses' Residence was closed in 1998 and the building is now part of the ACC culinary arts department.

Finished in 1924, the Valleyview building was the first to be shut down. By 1999, it was ruled to be in poor condition, needing a new roof and new windows. The Valleyview building sits at the east end of the site, is three stories high and has 50,000 square feet of usable space.
