Long Description:
Building #35, also known as Breitenbush Hall, was built in 1948 by noted Oregon architect Pietro Belluschi, one of the principal designers at the Albert E. Doyle firm. His other Salem works include the current Marion County Courthouse and Smullin Hall at Willamette University.

The building contains over 80,00 square feet of space with three stories plus a basement. It was designed as a "treatment hospital" and ultimately housed patient wards, a pharmacy, medical laboratory, a chapel and the hospital's communications center. It is located on the Oregon State Hospital's north campus, but like several other north campus buildings, it is currently vacant.

There are fallout shelter signs at two of the entrance doors on the north side of the building. The capacity is not listed on these signs, but given the size of the building, containing a full basement, the capacity would have to be several hundred.
