Own a piece of the Oregon Mental Hospital, formerly known as the Oregon State Insane Asylum, the venue for the filming of the Academy Award winning movie, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” starring Jack Nicholson, based on the novel by Oregon’s own Ken Kesey.

In 2009, the infamous Hospital in Salem, Oregon was demolished.  We bought the entire yard, about 9,000 board feet.  We milled about half of it for Worthy Brewing’s restaurant.

4,000 board feet for sale.  The rough sawn “studs” come in a variety of lengths: 13’, 10’, 9’, and 8’  These are totally authentic, meaning they’re scarred and gouged. Many contain square nails.  The wood is reputed to originated in and Old Growth grove of Douglas Fir, felled somewhere near Eugene in the late 19th Century, and originally milled and installed at the Asylum in early 1900s.

$4.25 per linear foot, plus shipping. 3 x 6 rough sawn lumber studs.

Please email Lisa at Lisa@worthybrewing.com if you are interested. The wood is currently stacked at Worthy Brewing in Bend, Oregon. You’d have to be nuts to throw away perfectly good wood!


The movie

The original stacks, 2010.

Worthy shipped the entire lot from Salem in 2010.

The second greatest novel published in 1962 by Oregon’s greatest novelist, Ken Kesey. Second only to “Sometimes A Great Notion.”
