Piggery - Spring Grove State Hospital 

This photograph, evidently taken around 1930, shows Spring Grove's "piggery."  The piggery was located several hundred yards east of Walker Avenue, near its intersection with Wilkens Avenue. (Catonsville, Baltimore County, Maryland.) Today, a Baltimore County Court House stands in the general vicinity of its location -- across the street from a police station.  (The property is no longer owned by Spring Grove.)  Another piggery, also operated by the hospital, once stood on land that today is occupied by employee cottages 1, 2 and 3 on Pecan Street.
