Woodlands Provincial School opened in 1878 as a mental health institution. In the 1930s, it changed its focus from a care facility to an educational facility for those with developmental disabilities. After becoming one of the largest institutions of its kind, it closed in 1996 but around 2000, allegations of abuse began to surface. In 2008, a large fire (the largest in the city's history) destroyed most of the buildings on the site, except for the center block (pictured). On October 18, 2011, the center block was finally demolished; today, none of the Woodlands buildings are still standing.
