Take a look inside the preservation efforts of two former state hospitals in Minnesota. First, we visit the historic Willmar State Hospital and see its transformation into a productive business community, the MinnWest Technology Campus. Then, we tour an architectural masterpiece, the Kirkbride building in Fergus Falls, where the Friends of the Kirkbride are fighting to keep it standing.
