Built in the 1890s, the Kirkbride state hospital in Fergus Falls has had a controversial past. Despite being listed on the state's historical registry, it had been slated for demolition. Recently the Fergus Falls city council agreed to allow a developer from Georgia to convert the vacant treatment center into a $41-million-dollar facility, featuring apartments, a hotel, a gym, and restaurants.
