The United States Marine Hospital of New Orleans was part of the Marine-Hospital Service, a group of Marine Hospitals dedicated to caring for ill and disabled seamen in the United States Merchant Marine, United States Coast Guard, and other federal beneficiaries. The Service was created by an act of the 5th United States Congress and signed into law by President John Adams in 1798. It was the first publicly-funded health care and disease prevention federal agency in the country. In New Orleans the federal government created a marine hospital before the United States officially assumed control of the Louisiana Purchase. A flood inundated the hospital's original building on the river's western shore near Algiers, so it was moved to the Jackson Barracks, where it stayed until 1858. A new location on Tchoupitoulas near Children's Hospital was eventually chosen. Improvements were made on the hospital grounds in 1931, when seven new buildings were constructed, as well as a stable, a laundry, and a service center. Over time, the scope of the hospital's duties expanded and it was renamed the Public Health and Marine Hospital Service and later the Public Health Service. By 1954 the facility became known simply as the United States Public Health Service Hospital. Eventually, federal funding was cut, and in 1981 the state acquired the property. The following year, the site became the State Drug Addiction Center and, in 1983, the New Orleans Adolescent Hospital.

This pre-Civil War plantation was the filming location for the New Orleans Adolescent hospital where Kyle is brought back to life in American Horror Story: Coven. The site served as a Marine hospital, a public health clinic and an adolescent hospital over the years. However, recently it has deteriorated and is home to many feral cats. However, it’s soon to be reopened as a children’s hospital.

We were driving around New Orleans visiting all the American Horror Story: Coven locations and stopped here. The gates were open and there was no sign about it being private property, so we went into the parking lot and drove around the back to take a look. It's got a ton of really cool looking abandoned buildings, in addition to the main hospital building. However, a security woman pulled us over and told us it was private property and escorted us out. (Since it was a loop we still got to see the whole thing)
