      2019 Patient Life Tour

      What was it like to live at the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane (now known as the Richardson Olmsted Campus)? Go behind-the-scenes and back in time to when the Richardson was home to thousands of people: patients, doctors, nurses, attendants, and staff. Please Note: This is a historical tour of abandoned buildings yet to be redeveloped by the Richardson. This is not a tour of Hotel Henry. For information about seeing the hotel, stop by the Front Desk or call 716-882-1970. What to Expect: - For your safety, sturdy, closed-toe shoes are required. We reserve the right to turn away anyone without appropriate shoes. Under no condition will sandals or high heels be allowed. - Photography is not allowed inside the historical buildings on this tour. For those interested in taking photographs, please check out our photography tours. - Hard hats will be provided. It is imperative that you stay with the tour group in the designated areas there are very unsafe areas within the Richardson. - This tour requires the ability to walk for the full duration of the tour as well as climb multiple flights of stairs. - Prepare to get a little dusty during your time on-site. If youre concerned about having an adverse reaction to the dust because of asthma or allergies, we recommend bringing a face mask or scarf. - You are strongly encouraged to bring bottled water as it can get warm inside the building in the summer. - Tours are rain or shine.
